- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions See How It's Made
- Mix in large bowl all together,.
- ground meat, 2 or 3 small pieces of garlic cut very fine, 1 teaspoon of parsley, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, 2-3 pieces of American bread that was squeezed (after it was put in water) (or just a little water), 2 or 3 cups of breadcrumbs, 3/4 cup of Romano cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
- Form in round or oblong meatballs about 1" in diameter.
- Fry in medium-hot oil in frying pan.
- Typically I set the burner to 4 on an electric stove or low on a gas stove.
- Fry meatballs (5 or 6 at a time) in the pan until they are browned (not blackened).
- It takes a bit of practice to cook them just right.
- Serve with tomato sauce, pasta, or however else you wish.
