Easy Appetizer Meatballs

These are great if you are having a party! Easy, simple, and quick.

What you’ll need:

1 pound of 85% ground hamburger

1/2 cup spicy or original yakitori sauce

1/4 cup bread crumbs

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger

cooking oil

other optional items:

red pepper flakes to taste

2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion

What you’ll do:

Combine all ingredients (except cookng oil) in medium-size mixing bowl and hand mix to incorporate the ingredients well. If you’d like them spicier, add red pepper flakes and green onion. Take a pinch of the mixture and roll into approximately quarter sized balls. I made mine into half dollar sized balls which my family said was a little too large for party snacking. At the half dollar-size I made 20 meatballs, so at the smaller size you should have between 30-35. Lay them out on a cookie sheet with wax paper. Take a medium-size skillet and add enough cooking oil to cover the bottom of the pan and heat on medium to medium-high heat. Place about 10 meatballs in at a time and gently turn so that all sides get browned, about 5-6 minutes of cooking time, remove from heat to cool and repeat until all are cooked. Dab with a paper towel to remove excess oil. Enjoy!
