Pork Meatball & Escarole Soup

Directions

  1. For meatballs: In a medium bowl whisk together egg, bread crumbs, milk, nutmeg, and 1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper. Stir in pork, chopped parsley, and Parmesan.
  2. In a 5- to 6-qt. Dutch oven heat oil over medium-high heat. Add celery and onion; cook and stir 5 minutes or until tender. Add escarole, chicken broth, 2 cups water, and whole parsley leaves. Bring to boiling; reduce heat to simmer.
  3. Drop rounded tablespoons of pork mixture into broth. Gently stir meatballs in broth. Cover; simmer 10 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through (160 degrees F). Top with additional Parmesan and black pepper. *Tip: Another night, shape and bake these meatballs on a pan lined with foil in a 375 degrees F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. Serve over pasta with pesto or tomato sauce.

Absolutely delicious. Great for a cold winter's night dinner with fresh homemade crusty bread or during the summer when escarole is at its peak and fresh from the farmers market or your garden. Delicious. Tasty! A must try! Easy, simple recipe. I can't rave enough about it. I doubled the recipe to feed 4 people.
