Pork Stuffing Balls

These are pretty good but I had no idea how fatty ground pork is so i'm not sure i'll ever make them again.

Pork stuffing Balls
1/2 cup herb-seasoned dry bread stuffing mix
3/4 cup hot water
1 pound ground pork
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp fennel seed
dash red pepper flakes
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 350*. In a medium bowl, mix herb-seasoned dry bread stuffing mix with hot water. Gradually mix in pork until blended with the stuffing mix. Stir in onion, celery, egg and seasonings. Shape the mixture into 1 inch balls. Place the balls on a large baking sheet covered with foil. Bake 35-45 minutes, until golden brown.
