I came up with the below recipe. The original calls for 80/20 ground beef, Progresso Italian bread crumbs and instead of baking - you would fry them in olive oil... In case you wanted the original recipe. The below is lower in fat all the way around as well as it is CLEAN - I found panko bread crumbs (of all places) at Big Lots that had only one ingredient - Panko Bread crumbs. No preservatives. Everything else - clean. These little suckers taste great alone or soaked in tomato sauce. I topped 1cup of polenta with them and cover them in sauce and mozzarella cheese - a great whole grain alternative to pasta.
Hope you love as much as I do!
