Simple Baked Meatballs





Simple Baked Meatballs
(Adapted from Stone Soup)

1 ONION, diced
24 ounces TOMATO SAUCE
1/2 lb GROUND BEEF
1/2 lb GROUND PORK
3 ounces ALMOND MEAL
SALT
PEPPER
2 tablespoons BUTTER, diced

1. Preheat the oven to 400F and heat a small frying pan to medium heat.
2. In the pan, fry the onion in some oil, stirring from time to time, until just soft and golden, about 5 minutes.
3. Pour the tomato sauce in the base of an oven proof dish. Combine the meat and almond meal in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Add the softened onions to the meat and mix to combine. Form the mixture into meat balls no larger than a golf ball and place them in the tomato sauce.
5. Scatter pieces of butter over the meatballs and bake for about 30 – 45 minutes, or until browned on top and cooked through.
