Forcemeat Balls Preparation

Source: Cooking Of The British Isles Time Life In a large bowl, combine the suet, ham, bread crumbs, parsley, lemon peel, thyme, sage, salt and a few grindings of pepper. Stir thoroughly, then add the egg and mix together until the forcemeat can be gathered into a ball. Divide into 12 equal pieces and with lightly moistened hands, shape each piece into a ball about 1 1/2 in in diameter. In a heavy 10 to 12 in skillet, melt the butter in the oil over moderate heat. When the foam has almost subsided, drop in the balls. Cook them for about 5 minutes or until the golden brown on all sides, turning them frequently with a spoon and regulating the heat so that they color slowly and evenly without burning. With a slotted spoon, transfer the balls to a double thickness of paper towels to drain briefly, and serve.
