1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1/4 cup parmesan cheese or other hard cheese, grated
3 Tbs fresh chopped sage
3 Tbs fresh chopped mint
3 tsp fresh thyme
2 tsp sea salt
Dash of hot sauce (optional)
Grapeseed or sunflower oil
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients well.
Form 20 golf-sized balls and lay them on a plate or pan.
In a shallow pan, heat the oil on medium-high until it sizzles. Lower the heat and cook the meatballs in two batches, about 7-9 minutes each, turning them once in a while to cook on all sides.
Set aside on a plate and repeat.
Serve with the maple drizzle and some sea salt flakes.
