Sweet Apple Pork Meatballs

I grew up eating lots and lots of pork. Despite all of the jokes you can throw my way about failing to keep “Kosher”, I’m a very happy Jew with my breakfast filled with bacon and sausages. My body responds well to animal fat, so there is no reason for me to resist. I wanted to make some spiraled pasta with my nifty and new kitchen gadget: here it is!

It’s about time I attempted to make some meatballs anyways. What else would I put atop these awesome zucchini noodles? Well, I’m sure there are a million things I could serve them with, but the most obvious choice for me was meatballs. I wanted to incorporate some sweetness because one of my favorite breakfast foods is apple chicken sausage. Since I am babbling on about pork though, I will be omitting the chicken and replacing it with some pig, wink wink. If you’d like, you can turn these into patties as well. I just love meatballs, bada boom.

Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 2 apples peeled and finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425° F. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. You will most likely need more than one if you are going to use the entire 2 1/2 pounds.
  2. Combine all of your spices into a large bowl.
  3. Add in the ground pork. Using your hands, spread the spices onto all of the meat. Then, you can add in the diced apples and combine thoroughly.
  4. Create 30-40 meatballs (about 1-oz each). Spread them evenly on the parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake meatballs in the oven for 25-30 minutes until they appear golden brown.
  6. Serve with your favorite side dish. I prepared mine with zoodles (spiraled zucchini pasta.) Enjoy!

Red or green apples?

Either will work, green for more tart meatballs and red for sweeter!
