So this year my mom decided I should have a KitchenAid Mix Master for christmas. So far I'm loving it.

Last weekend I totally experimented by making my first ever batch of meatballs. So Nigel and I go off to the store to figure out what we can find. We end up wanting a mixture of meats, so we go with ground turkey and ground sirloin beef.

Meatballs With Fork One of the best photos I took.



CookTime: 25 min

Yields: 10


  • 1 Large Onion Diced
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • crushed red pepper
  • 0.5kg of ground beef and ground turkey
  • 2 large eggs
  • Lots of ground cheese (I used soy loaf cheese cause lactose intollerant)
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Cooked onions in a frying pan. When mostly clear, add garlic and some crushed red pepper.
  2. In a large bowl, add Meat, Eggs, Cheese, Breadcrumbs, Onions and start the mixer.
  3. At this point I got crazy and added some dill and a couple other spices. They weren't really noticeable though.
  4. Brown meatball creations using oil and pan, then bake on a baking sheet at 350F for about 25 minutes depending on size of the meatball.
