Forced Meatballs

  • Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix
  • Egg
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh Parsley
  • Flour
  1. Mix pork sausage meet with stuffing mix (use about one quarter stuffing mix to the sausage proportion).
  2. Beat an egg and add it also to the mixture along with the chopped parsley.
  3. Use your hands to squidge it together.
  4. It will be soft and messy.
  5. Shape the mixture into 1½ inch balls and roll in a small amount of flour on a plate just to lightly coat them.

  7. Put them in the oven after the turkey comes out.
These are traditional in the Douglas family. My Mom used to make them at Christmas (since we didn’t have Thanksgiving!). The recipe is very approximate…
