Czech Meatballs from Well Fed

I’ve made this recipe a few times now and we really like it! It initially drew my attention because I love Prague and really enjoyed experiencing the Czech culture when I visited with the Aggie Wind Symphony in college. This recipe is pretty straight forward and kind of a different type of meal. I think you can easily use these little meat ball guys cut up on salads later or even on a sandwich! It’s another recipe from the Well Fed cook book, so definitely just wanted to link that in case you are interested in purchasing your own copy! This little book has a lot of great basic info, with sections on each kind of food group, so if you are just starting out with your food changes, it might be a good one to look into.


  • 2 lbs. ground pork
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. caraway seeds
  • 1 tsp. ground paprika
  • 1 tbsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves (1/4 cup minced)
  • 1 tbsp. grainy mustard
  • 1 large egg

What To Do:

  1. Mix together all of the seasonings together and the egg in a large bowl.
  2. Crumble the ground pork into the bowl of seasonings and mix together with your hands until everything is evenly mixed throughout the meat.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Roll the meat mixture into small balls and line them up on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

We like to eat these on top of cauliflower rice and spinach. I also like to have a little bit of mayonnaise (I know it sounds weird but it works) to dip these little guys in. Again, good leftover and even a winner in the toddler department hehe. Enjoy guys!

Mom… PLEASE lemme have some of that!!!
