The moral of the story is... it's ok to play with your food (especially when you get to make cool worm creatures in the process). Sorry, mom - a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!
Recipe for "Pork Balls"
1.5 lbs pork (pre-ground or grind your own)
2 cups bread chunks (if you are not grinding your own, I would substiute ~1.5 cups finely shredded bread slices)
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 tsp Italian Seasoning (or other blend)
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 375F. Mix well. Form mixture into 2" balls & place onto lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for ~20 minutes or until the interior is done (no longer pink). Turn over at least once during baking. Remove from oven & enjoy!
The combination of lean meat & baking keeps this dish on the "lighter" side.
