If you want to make your best Italian meatballs? Go here!, never add garlic and parsley powder as I have seen where else. Don't add those artificial ingredients but instead use fresh ones for an authentic taste! *Credit for this original recipe can be found online at:

  1. 1. Combine the bread and milk in a small bowl, mashing occasionally with a fork, until a smooth paste forms about a few minutes.
  2. 2. Mix all meatballs ingredients, beef, pork, egg, grated Parmesan Cheeses or Parmigiano, parsley, then include the bread and milk mixture with salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  3. 3. Lightly form, 3 tablespoons of the mixture into a round meatball, repeat with the remaining mixture to form approximately 15 meatballs.
  4. 4. Heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat in a frying pan. Add one by one the meatballs in a single layer, and when the edge of the meatballs dipped in oil sizzles, turn around several times. This just until nicely browned on all sides, a few minutes.
  5. 5. Transfer the browned meatballs to a paper towel and set aside. Repeat, if necessary with remaining meatballs.
