  • Step 1.

    Pre-heat oven to 350℉.

  • Step 2.

    In a small bowl, mix together breading ingredients (first five ingredients) and set aside.

  • Step 3.

    Add 2 tablespoons of oil into a medium-sized skillet, on medium heat. Once hot, add onions, garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, and sage. Cook until onions are tender, about 6 minutes. Once cooked, remove the mixture from the pan and set it aside to cool.

  • Step 4.

    In a large bowl, combine Hungry Planet Pork, onion mixture, and parsley. Mix until well combined. Once mixed, separate pork into 12-2 ounce meatballs. Once formed, place meatballs onto a plate. Using a brush or your fingers, lightly coat meatballs in mustard. When meatballs are fully coated, dredge each piece in the breading mixture and evenly coat.

  • Step 5.

    Once your meatballs are prepared, take your wooden skewer and place 3 on each.

  • Step 6.

    Add 2 tablespoons of oil into a large, oven-proof skillet, on medium-high heat. Once hot, place skewers down and cook on each side until golden brown, about 6 minutes. Once browned, place skewers onto the oven and cook another 4 to 5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160℉.

  • Step 7.

    Serve pork spiedini with mashed potatoes and your favorite seasonal vegetables, a simple angel hair pasta, or as an easy appetizer for any party.
