Italian Sausage Meatballs with Fresh Herbs

Italian Sausage Meatballs with Fresh Herbs1 lb ground beef (or bison)
1 lb sweet Italian sausage
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 sprig fresh rosemary, minced
3 sprigs fresh thyme, minced
1 long sprig fresh oregano, minced
¼ C. roughly chopped flat leaf parsley
½ small yellow onion, roughly chopped
½ C. almond meal
2 eggs, whisked
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
Black pepper
¼ C. cream (optional)
½ C. finely shredded parmesan (optional)
¼ C. bacon fat

Remove the Italian sausage from its casing. Mix all of the ingredients, except bacon fat, together until well combined. With lightly oiled hands, roll the meatballs into the desired size. To cook, heat bacon fat in a saute pan over medium to medium-high heat. Once hot, add the meatballs. Fry 5–7 minutes, until bottom is browned. Turn meatballs to opposite side and fry until that side is nicely browned, another 5–7 minutes. Cut one open to determine if it is fully cooked on the inside. If not quite done, turn heat to low and cover pan for a few more minutes or put meatballs in a warm oven while you fry another batch.
