Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions and saute for roughly 5 minutes. Then add the mushrooms and turn the heat up to high and cook for 10 - 15 minutes. The water should be evaporated from the mushrooms after 10 minutes and then the mushrooms should brown for 5 minutes. Just before you remove the mushrooms from the heat, mix in the garlic. Then remove from the heat and allow to cool down.
  2. After the mushrooms have cooled down, transfer the mixture to a food processor. Add in the rest of the meatball ingredients and process until your desired texture. Cover and store in the fridge for at least 1 hour. This allows the flavors to intensify.
  3. Before making the meatballs, heat up oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. When you're ready to make the meatballs, measure out roughly a tablespoon of the mixture and form small balls. Repeat until the mixture is finished.
  4. Fry the balls until they turn brown on the underside and rotate. Repeat this until you are satisfied with them. You can also bake them in a 400 F/ 200Β° C oven for 15 minutes.
  5. Serve with our delicious tomato pasta sauce over some fettuccine or as delicious appetizers at your next party. Enjoy!
