Ingredients

  • 1/2 Pound Ground Pork (or Ground Italian Sausage)

  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced

  • 1 Egg, Whisked

  • 1/3 Cup Bread Crumbs

  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan, Grated

  • 1 1/3 Cup Fresh Parsley, Chopped

  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning, to Taste

  • Italian Seasoning, to Taste

  • 1 1/3 Tablespoon Butter

  • 1/2 Onion, Chopped

  • 1/2 Red Bell Pepper, Chopped

  • 1 1/3 Tablespoon Flour

  • Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning, to Taste

  • 1/3 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Directions

  1. Add ground chicken, ground pork, garlic, egg, bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, olive oil, Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning and Italian seasoning to a large bowl. Use your hands to mix everything together until well combined.
  2. Use a small ice cream scoop or your hands to form meatballs about 1-2 inches big.
  3. Coat a skillet with olive oil and turn heat to medium high. Add meatballs in batches (don’t overcrowd the skillet) and allow them to sear until golden brown on all sides. Once done, remove meatballs from pan and set aside. Meatballs will not be fully cooked and that’s okay.
  4. Turn heat down to medium-low and add in butter to melt. Add in chopped onions and bell peppers and cook until soft, stirring occasionally.
  5. Stir in the flour and continue to stir for 2-3 minutes, until mixture is browned. Pour in the chicken broth and use whisk to mix in the flour until thickened. Add in Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning and taste. Adjust seasoning per your taste.
  6. Reduce heat to low and add meatballs back into the skillet. Allow meatballs to simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked through.
  7. Spoon gravy over meatballs. Garnish with parsley and grated Parmesan, and serve. They are perfect with mashed potatoes, or one of Tony’s Rice Dinner Mixes!
