 This meatball recipe containing Slim Jim meat sticks is unlike any you’ve seen before. I first heard of this recipe while watching the Hunger Channel with George Duran, with him actually testing it on people walking on the street.  While beef jerky isn't conventionally an ingredient for a meatball recipe, it tastes great, and is also a great conversation starter.


  • 1/2 cup panko
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 sausage link, casing removed
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped parsley


  1. Preheat broiler and line baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Mix panko and milk in bow, and let settle for 5 minutes
  3. Put all ingredients in the food processor, and pulse to stir ingredients together
  4. Run food processor until a paste is formed
  5. Roll the meat into balls (make sure hands are wet)
  6. Place the Slim Jim Balls onto the baking sheet, and broil for 10 minutes
  7. Skewer balls, and enjoy!

...or at least of few spoons. I have no real appetite (thankfully not one of the side effects I get from prednisone) but no spoons to spare, either. This totally rocks if you have a freezer for keeping 'semi-prepped' ingredients.

diced potato; raw or blanched (I keep a bag in the freezer, suitable for roasting or frying or...)
raw fingerling potatoes work fine as is, the red roasting potato (I have no idea the UK/European counterpart) gets diced then blanched briefly. Slicing with a food processor works also, but I like the chunky texture.

Ham scraps; could use bacon, leftover fowl... diced or torn in small pieces

Eggs; (I use two) lightly scrambled with a small amount of cold water

Cheese; whatever you like that grates or crumbles

Butter a small bowl or casserole. (searches mind for the right name for the crockery I'm thinking of -- I knew it once, I swear!) Can also be done in a small saute' on stovetop.
Add potatoes, 3/4 to 1 cup, salt and pepper as desired. Micro for 3 minutes. Saute' on med-high, turning for even browning.
Add eggs and meat, scrambling through. Top with cheese. Cover with parchment or usual anti-spatter cover. Micro for 2-2 1/2 minutes. On stovetop scramble eggs and meat with potato until egg begins to set, then add cheese. Enjoy!

Cons; requires some knife work, assumes access to fully cooked meat products.
Pro; protein dense, takes less time to make than it took me to type it - by far :-/

(the rest of the Breakfast of Doom was house blended Cinnamon/Vanilla Black Tea)

Generic handy tip - which may have come up here before I joined the community, but...
Adding cheese at or near the end of cooking reduces the likelihood of very firmly melting to pot, so cleanup is easier.

First post, hope I'm doing it right:). I've got ridiculous insulin levels and various associated illnesses, so I've got to keep my carbs in check. But sometimes it's just too much effort to even fry stuff. I can always grab veggies from the fridge, but the meat is a bit trickier if I don't want to live on just slices of ham. So the microwave is a faster option. Here's a list of a couple of microwaved or otherwise fast proteiny things I've tried with my veggies with a fair amount of success.

I'll add more when I can remember them. Hope these will come in handy for someone at least:)
