Grilled Meatballs

This meatball grill basket seriously takes meatballs to a whole new level. When grilled they have a perfect crust on the outside that keeps the inside juicy and tender. I'm not sure I can eat a meatball any other way now. I'm ruined! Who knew?

This grill basket is from Sur La Table (I think they are currently unavailable) but they do have one that's similar at Williams Sonoma.

Grilled Meatballs
1 lb ground beef
1 egg
1 t. salt
1 t. black pepper
3 T. milk
1/4 c. bread crumbs
2 T. fresh parsley - finely minced
4 cloves garlic - finely minced
1/4 onion - finely minced

In a medium mixing bowl whisk egg. Add milk, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Let soak for 3-5 minutes. Add in ground beef, parsley, onion, garlic. Mix just to combine. Do not over mix. Roll into round balls to fit a meatball grill basket. Makes 12 large meatballs.

Heat gas grill to 400 degrees F. Grill 10 minutes each side.

Serve with your favorite pasta and sauce or slice meatballs and serve on a bun with marinara and provolone for a tasty meatball sandwich.
