last night i planned on making spaghetti and meatballs. i came home late and rushed around the kitchen trying to get my meatballs prepared. i thought i had 1 lb of turkey burger, so i add enough breadcrumbs soaked in buttermilk, egg, basil, and onions. however, the meat was short, thus turning my mixture into a slimy mess.
i thought my dinner was doomed. but instead, i whipped out a skillet, added some olive oil, and decided to attempt to solidify my mixture by frying them first. luckily, it worked! i was able to cook the ‘meatballs’ enough that they took little patty shapes.
then i baked them for 20 minutes.
my dinner was delicious and the meatballs were actually very flavorful, fluffy, and light.
i might not make them exactly like that again, but it’s good to know that a) i didn’t give up, b) i saved the meal, and c) it was delicious!
