If you’re looking for a new Christmas recipe, look no further. This Christmas Goat Meatballs Recipe sounds delicious.
1 pound ground goat
1 small clove garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Olive oil for blushing
3 tablespoons light molasses, honey, or spiced syrup (you can change this to what sounds good to you!)
Chopped fresh mint and pomegranate seeds to garnish
Kneed together the goat meat, garlic, salt, orange zest, and pepper until combined in a large bowl (you can be creative with your spices: ginger, cumin or cinnamon would be a lively addition).
Form into 1-inch meatballs. Once you've moved them to a foil-lined baking sheet, brush with oil. Turn on the broiler. Put meatballs under the broiler until golden and just cooked through, turning as you go. Brush with molasses immediately. Sprinkle with mint and pomegranate and serve with toothpicks. It's an appetizer made perfect with crackers and your favorite variety of goat cheese!
