Marvelous Meat Balls

1 pound ground venison (or hamburger)

1 pound ground turkey (I usually use more than a pound because that’s how I get it at Costco) or turkey sausage.

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

3 eggs

2 Tbsp. parsley flakes

3 slices of bread, soaked in water or crunched up crackers

Squeeze water out of bread slices and mix ingredients all together, mix well.  A kitchen-aide does an excellent job!

Form meat into balls, like this:

Take a good amount of meat and shape into a nice even rectangle on wax paper or a cutting board.

Then use a knife or pastry cutter to evenly cut little squares, a little over an inch square.

Roll into little balls.  Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes, checking for doneness.  I like to set my hot meatballs on paper towels to get off the extra fat. 

Repeat until you’ve gone through all your meat.  This makes a nice big batch of meatballs.  For our family size I get enough for dinner and enough to freeze for another dinner!
