DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF (190ºC).

  2. Tear the bread into pieces. Place in a bowl and pour over the milk. Set aside.

  3. By hand or using a food processor, finely chop the onions, celery, carrot, and garlic cloves. Chop the mushrooms to a medium dice.

  4. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the onions, celery, carrot, and garlic until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms, thyme, oregano leaves, and a pinch of salt. Continue to cook for 5 minutes until the mushrooms have released their liquid and all the vegetables and soft. Remove from the heat and cool.

  5. In a large bowl, add the Impossible® meat, sauteed seasonings, milk-soaked bread, egg, parsley, Worcestershire, ketchup, onion powder and garlic powder. Mix gently but well. Stir in the grated cheese, flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Shape into balls using 2 tablespoon of mixture.

  6. In a clean skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Brown the Impossible meatballs on each side until golden brown. Transfer to a baking sheet. Bake in the over for 5 to 7 minutes until cooked through.
