I made bacon jam several days ago for the first time and fell in love. It is wonderful slightly heated and served with scrambled eggs in the morning; however, as it was cooking, I had a thought that it would make a great meatball ingredient. When I lived in Naples, Italy they had a dish called Tortellini in Brodo (tortellini in broth). So, I thought that these meatballs would make a good substitution and I was right…especially with the fresh, chopped basil leaves sprinkled on top.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine first five ingredients. Form into 16 meatballs.
Lightly grease a baking pan with preferred oil (I used coconut oil). Place meatballs in the greased pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Heat broth and divide into four bowls. Place four meatballs in each bowl. Divide chopped basil among the bowls and garnish. Enjoy!
