Mascarpone Meatballs

These meatballs are so tender and packed with Italian flavors that you'll want to make them again and again.  They are great for a light summertime meal.  Just add some vegetables and you are set.  



Mascarpone Meatballs

1# extra lean ground beef
1/2# ground pork
1 large egg
4 oz mascarpone cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp parsley
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp thyme
1.8 tsp crushed red pepper


Cream together milk, egg and mascarpone.  In a large bowl, mix together the meat, panko and spices.  Add in the milk mixture and mix until completely combined.  Scoop out into balls and place on a non-stick aluminum foil lined large baking pan.  Bake for 25 minutes at 350°.
