BUTTERNUT SQUASH MEATBALLS Recipe

Ingredients
  • 1 pound lean minced lamb, beef or turkey (I use ground turkey-NOT just the breast)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped (small)
  • 2 cups mushrooms finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 pieces whole wheat bread crumbled or 1 cup breadcrumbs (real bread makes it more moist)
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 2 tablespoons good quality vegetable oil
  • 1 cup butternut squash puree
Directions
Preheat oven to 350. Place all ingredients except oil in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Use hands to divide and shape mixture into 50 very small balls or 25 regular sized meat balls (i prefer 25-more moist). Refrigerate for 15 or more minutes. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry the meatballs turning them frequently. Fry until lightly brown about 5. Put in ovenproof dish (Pyrex); cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes.

Use red sauce and serve over your favorite pasta.
