- 1/2 pound ground pork
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1/3 cup minced onion
- 1/3 cup minced red bell pepper
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Pinch of ground paprika
- In a small sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the onion and bell pepper until soft, about 10 minutes.
- Combine the meat with the sautéed onion and pepper, the egg, the breadcrumbs, and salt, pepper and paprika. With wet hands, form the meat into small balls.
- Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a sauté pan and cook the meatballs until browned on all sides and cooked through. Serve with toothpicks, or a simple tomato sauce for dipping and crusty bread for mopping everything up.
