Avoidance Meatballs

Food & Drink / Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

I have so many words and thoughts running in my brain right now I’m not sure how I’m gonna get them all out, and how they are going to land.

So of course instead of blogging I cooked instead.

I shall call these avoidance meatballs.


I know I’m not the only one who cooks this way, but I just sort of threw stuff together from the fridge to make them. Started with ground beef and breakfast sausage and added two eggs, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, Parmesan cheese, blue cheese crumbles and crumbled up cornbread muffins we had leftover from chili the other, um, day. Yeah let’s say day.

Spices? I added minced garlic, salt, pepper, chives, fresh rosemary and a bunch of the “savory” mix from the spice rack. Who knows what that is, but I’m sure it will be good. No, I don’t measure I just throw stuff together until it looks and feels right. I call it the Grandma Baker way of cooking.


Oh, and I deep-fried the little balls of love with Beef Tallow I rendered the other day.


Cause you know, what else are you supposed to do during a snowstorm, right?

I also made avoidance meatloaf.  And avoidance baked rigatoni and there is an avoidance chuck roast in the crockpot.


Whatcha talkin' bout Willis?
