DIRECTIONS

  • Combine ground beef, sausage, veal, garlic, and parsley in a large bowl and put aside.
  • Mix the bread, beef stock, Parmesan cheese, romano cheese, pepper, sea salt, eggs, and breadcrumbs together. Combine well, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or over night.
  • Roll into1-1/2 size balls and fry in 1' of olive oil until golden brown on all sides, or bake for 25 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit - great either way.
  • Meatballs may be added to your favorite sauce or eat them straight from the oven or pan.
