Nice meatball recipe, this is moist and juicy. I may try baking next time, try to cut down on a bit of the oil. Thanks for posting.
Made for Fall 2011 PAC

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dice cloves of garlic and put into a medium bowl.
  2. Add grated cheese, parsley, salt, black pepper, bread (put bread under cold water; ring out; break up), and eggs. Mix all ingredients with a fork.
  3. Add chopped meat and mix well. Form into balls.
  4. Pour enough oil into a large fry pan to cover the bottom. Fry meatballs on medium heat until browned on all sides.
  5. OPTIONAL: A quick solution if the meatballs are done before the rest of your meal - place into large pot filled with marinara sauce and cover. Let simmer over lowest possible flame until ready to serve (no more than one hour).
  6. Enjoy!
