Garlic Dill Meatballs

Serve the meatballs alone on toothpicks as an hors d'oeuvre or on a layer of creamy mushroom sauce as an entree or first course.



  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F (200° C).
  2. Combine the chicken, pork, onion, pork rinds, egg, garlic, dill, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Divide the mixture into twelve 2-inch meatballs.
  4. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking.
  5. Brown the meatballs, turning them about 6 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake the meatballs, covered for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately.
  7. You can double or triple the recipe as needed. Makes about 12 meatballs.

I ended up using lean ground beef since that was what I had in the freezer. They turned out better than the pre-fab meatballs I usually buy. Be sure to move the oven rack to the top for broiling.

Phase II only allows low fat meat like chicken and fish - no ground beef or pork and no frying. So this recipe is probably tasty, but you need to be careful to use lower fat meats.
