Recipe - Flower Meatballs

Notes: These are about the size of bottle caps...Please pardon my shadow, it likes the limelight...You can use these to decorate pasta or stick them in your bento with a little bit of soy sauce. They can also sit in the freezer for-probably-almost-ever if you put them in ziplock bags.
  • 1 lbs of Ground Animal Bits - I used 3 turkey  patties that were on sale
  • 1 Egg
  • Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Small Onion
  • Optional: Green onion
  • 1-2 tbsp of Granulated Chicken Stock
  • Sakura (or any shape you like) cutter
Casting Sequence:

  • Dice the Onions
  • Crack the Egg
  • Mush the Meat into the Onions and the Egg
  • Add the Bread Crumbs a little bit at a time until the mass can form a wad with the consistency of play-dough
  • Spread the wad on a flat counter (hopefully lined with aluminum foil) until it's about 1 inch thick - See picture to the right
  • Use a cookie cutter (any shape will do, I just found the idea of a meat flower ironic) to break bigger wad into mini-wads
  • Heat up the oil to high
  • Fry those flowers on each side until they look like fired meatballs (golden-brown for those who have never seen fried food before)
  • Pluck those omnomnoms out and let the oil drain a little on a piece of paper towel.
