Italian Meatballs

Italian Meatballs created by Papa Villadi

This is my old original recipe for Italian meatballs from 25 years ago. I've never shared it with anyone until now. I guess I'm growing up! HA! You'll probably want to double the recipe. Don't switch the brand of the breadcrumbs or it won't taste right. Tomato gravy means the same thing as spaghetti sauce.

    Chef K,<br/><br/>I do mine pretty much the same but include: 1/2 lb. pork sausage, 3 or 4 eggs (as the binder), use 1 cup of regular breadcrumbs, 1 cup grated parmesan/romano, and about twice as much of the seasonings - yield about 21-25 decent-sized meatballs that I brown in olive oil in my cast iron frying pan on the stove top before snding them off to the "marinara pool" with the rest of the gang.

    I made these tasty meatballs for PAC 06. They are SO nummy and packed full of flavor !! I tried a couple but the rest got frozen for dh while I am away in Canada for 4 wks. I think if you were to use plain bread crumbs you would lose so much of the flavor. The cheese mixture adds just the right amount of zip to the meatballs. Thanks Kiddle !!!!
