PORK-APPLE MEATBALLS WITH EGG NOODLES
Preheat broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and grease (really good) with butter.
In a large mixing bowl, combine:
1 lb ground pork
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1 small granny-smith apple, peeled and grated
1/2 small white onion, grated
3 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
and 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Shape into small to medium size meatballs (you'll have at least 16) and arrange on baking sheet. Broil until golden and cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a pot of boiling salted water, cook:
1 package (12oz) egg noodles
Until al dente. Drain and return to pan and toss with:
4 tablespoons butter, cut into peices
5 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
salt & pepper to taste
Divide noodles onto plates and top with meatballs.
