Fun With FoodBY JOANNA STELLOH PHELPSI love meatballs! All kinds of meat- balls, Norwegian, Italian, chicken, etc. They are versatile and can be eaten on their own or added to sauces, put over pasta or rice, ormade into sandwiches. Last week I even made them into lasagna. Below are two recipes, one basic and one a little different to satisfy your cravings for them too.Classic MeatballsIngredients:• 2 tablespoons olive oil• 1 tablespoon butter• 1 small onion, finely chopped• 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced• 1 pound ground beef• 1⁄2 pound ground pork (or pork sausageworks too)• 1⁄2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs • 1⁄4 cup Panko bread crumbs• 1⁄4 cup grated Parmesan cheeseMEATBALLS!• 2 teaspoons each of garlic and onion powders• 1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning blend (your choice)• 2 teaspoons each of Worcestershire and soy sauces• 2 tablespoons milk• 1 egg• Salt and pepper to tasteInstructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil, spray cookie rack with “Pam” and set aside. Melt and heat butter and olive oil in medium skillet; add onions and sauté until softened, about 6-8 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Remove from heat. In large bowl, mix all ingredients, adding sautéed onions and garlic and mix lightly until just combined. Overworking the meat will make meatballs tough. Using an ice cream scoop, roll meatballs into 1 1⁄2 to 2 inch balls, put on prepared pan and lightly spray tops of the meatballs. Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through. Serve with favorite spa- ghetti or Norwegian meatball sauce.Chicken/Turkey Piccata MeatballsIngredients:• 2 tablespoons olive oil• 1 tablespoon butter• 1 small onion, finely chopped• 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced• 1 1⁄4 pounds ground chicken or turkey • 1⁄2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs • 1⁄4 cup Panko bread crumbs• 1 teaspoons Italian seasoning• 2 teaspoons each of garlic and onionpowders• 1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning blend(your choice)• 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce• 2 tablespoons milk• 1 egg• Salt and pepper to tasteInstructions: Follow the same procedure above for making meatballs. While chick- en meatballs are cooking, melt 2 table- spoons butter, whisk in 3 tablespoons flour, then whisk in 1 1⁄2 cups chicken broth, 1⁄2 cup fresh lemon juice, 1⁄4 cup capers, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer until thick and serve with meatballs.formerlyREGION 3B AREA AGENCY ON AGINGPROMOTING HEALTH • INDEPENDENCE • CHOICEYOUTo our 2018 Sponsors, Teams, Volunteers, andparticipants for helping to create solutions for the those impacted by dementia in Calhoun County through movement, programming and research.Stacey LottAttorney at LawA Keen Kreation | Banks Family | Battle Creek Host Lions Club | Hires Family | Optimist Club of Battle Creek | Michigan Health Endowment Fund | Post Foundation Prosecuting Attorney’s Office | Shouldice Industrial | Small Business Development Fund - City of Battle Creek | Women of Impact14 SCENE 4311 I CHARITABLE ISSUETHANKThe Village ofMill Creek A SENIOR LIVING COMMUNITY A Mission of Presbyterian Villages of Michigan
