This recipe is marked as a Phase 2 recipe in the cookbook. It is low enough in NC however to be considered Phase 1 unless you are in the first 2 weeks of Induction due to the nuts.
  1. Combine almond meal, meats, cheese, eggs, dill, minced garlic, mint, oregano, cinnamon, salt, and pepper; mix gently with your hands.
  2. Moisten your hands (this helps prevent mixture from sticking); shape mixture into 1-inch balls and set aside.
  3. Place 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the meatballs; cook, turning frequently until browned on all sides and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Repeat with 2 more tablespoons olive oil and remaining meatballs. Serve with toothpicks or wooden skewers as an appetizer.
