    suuuuper yummy meatballs!
    [recipe is adapted from one that I do not remember the origin of!]

    1 pound [or so] ground beef
    1/2 tsp sea salt
    1/2 onion, diced
    1 garlic clove, finely minced
    1/2 Herbamare Original or spicy
    3/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
    1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
    3/4 tsp dried oregano
    hot sauce to taste
    1/3 cup grated Parmegiano Reggiano
    1/4 cup 35% heavy cream
    1/3 cup crushed Mary's Organic gluten-free crackers, herb flavour [optional]
    your favourite tomato sauce [I used Whole 365]

    1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
    2. Place the beef into a mixing bowl, and add salt, onion, Herbamare, garlic, Italian seasoning, oregano, red pepper flakes, hot sauce, and mix until fully combined [really get your hands into it!]. Add the cream, cheese, and crushed crackers. Mix until all of the ingredients are distributed evenly, then form into balls [it will make about 12], and place onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper
    3. Bake for about 20 minutes [they will get a nice brown crust
    4. Warm the tomato sauce in a saucepan on the stove while your meatballs cook
    5. Remove meatballs from the oven and transfer to a plate and cover with sauce

        Another great way to do meatballs is to use 1/3 lb ground beef, 1/3 lb ground pork, 1/3 lb ground veal (a.k.a meatloaf mix in most U.S. supermarkets but you could/should definitely grind it yourself if you have the means). The taste/texture is out of this world and those red pepper flakes are the key!
        The greater the achievement the more difficult the path. The easy road is granted to those less fortunate as a consolation prize.
