Italian Sausage Meatballs with Fresh Herbs

1 lb ground beef (or bison)
1 lb sweet Italian sausage
2 clove garlic, minced
1 sprig fresh rosemary, minced
3 sprigs fresh thyme, minced
1 long sprig fresh oregano, minced
1/4 cup roughly chopped flat leaf parsley
1/2 small yellow onion, roughly chopped
1/2 cup almond meal
2 eggs, whisked
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 Black pepper
1/4 cup cream (optional)
1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan (optional)
1/4 cup bacon fat


Remove the Italian sausage from its casing. Mix all of the ingredients, except bacon fat, together until well combined. With lightly oiled hands, roll the meatballs into the desired size. To cook, heat bacon fat in a saute pan over medium to medium-high heat. Once hot, add the meatballs. Fry 57 minutes, until bottom is browned. Turn meatballs to opposite side and fry until that side is nicely browned, another 57 minutes. Cut one open to determine if it is fully cooked on the inside. If not quite done, turn heat to low and cover pan for a few more minutes or put meatballs in a warm oven while you fry another batch.
