Roasted Garlic Stuffed Meatballs rec.

Arghg, I think my kids must think I'll curl up and blow away if Im not at the stove Youngest daughter, has taken on super bowl at her house..guess who, is making most of the goodies? me!!! Daughter just called and asked ever so sweetly, mom, could you please make some of thos little stuffed meatballs?? Sure honey, good ol mom replied...
Sooo, I'm now roasting heads of garlic, that will have to be peeled and carefully so they come out whole to be stuffed into the meatball mix..
So, here is what I mix for the meats
30 whole med sized cloves garlic, roasted
6-7 cloves garlic minced
3-shallots minced
evoo
3-sprigs fresh thyme
1-c. fresh bread crumbs
3/4-lb. ground pork
3/4-lb. lean ground beef
1/2-lb. freshly grated dry jack cheese or parmesan
salt and pepper

roast garlic,but separate the cloves before oiling them. roast, remove from oven and let cool,then peel each clove and set aside.
Saute minced garlic and shallots in a little evoo 2-3 min, don't brown. Chop the thyme then combine thyme,garlic,shallots,bread crumbs, pork,beef, cheese salt and pepper. Put 1 tab. of this mixture in your hand and form a ball, with your thumb make an indentation and insert a clove of the roasted garlic,then pinch the meat together to close over garlic. continue til all meat balls are made. Then saute the meatballs over med. heat in a little evoo til brown turn and brown all sides. We serve these with creme fraiche..
They are also good if you save the oil from roasting your garlic and toss it with angel hair pasta and the meatballs.Now I'm taking the phone OFF the hook and hiding...
enjoy,
kadesma

Kadesma, sounds great.

One question please.

A goodly number of years ago made baked chicken with many cloves of garlic ala Frugal Gourmet. My cookbooks are all packed away since we are redoing a part of the house so I don't have the recipe available.

As I recall it used a chicken and several heads, yep, heads, of garlic, and other ingredients.

Seems to us the Frug said the roasting would kill the odor.

Made it on a Sunday and we reeked of garlic until Wednesday.

As I have to work with the public, can I get away with making this on Superbowl Sunday, eat some, and hope to have no garlic fragrance on Monday?

Kadesma, when I roast garlic, I peel of the extraneous outer stuff, slice about 1/2 inch or so of the tops, just exposing the open tips of the garlic buds. I put it in a piece of foil, pour a little olive oil over the top, close foil, and bake in oven or on grill.
After the head is roasted, all you have to do is squeeze, and the little roasted bulbs will pop right out of their "shells". Sure will save you a lot of time and energy.

The meatballs look to "die for!"

Aunt dot, I guess if we swallowed em whole it might work But I'd suppose, if we only ate a few, we might be able to get away with it..I do know my best friends mom use to chew parsley leaves and stems after she had garlic, but, I wouldn't bet my last nickle on it working..Wish I could help more, I'd love to get your thoughts on the meatballs.

Parsley is good for your breath.

Congrats to you, as a person who works with the public, for considering your breath! Very thoughtful.
