Can't have a blog about 1001 meatballs served and not share the recipe!
I don’t use measurements, so use common sense and you will know if they are too wet or dry when you’re mixing.
2 pounds of mixed veal, ground beef and pork (if your grocery doesn’t have this, they should have at least the beef/pork mix, that’s fine)
4 cloves of garlic chopped fine (NOT POWDER!)
2 eggs-I don’t beat mine, just break them in
FRESH basil–about 8 leaves chopped
FRESH Parsley-about 3/4-1 cup
Pecorino Romano cheese grated (DO NOT USE SHAKER CHEESE!) about 1/2 cup maybe a little more
Bread Crumbs about 1/2-3/4 cup you will know when your mixingif you need to add more, but don’t make the mix too dry or you’ll have rocks for meatballs.
Salt and pepper
Onion powder. My dad is allergic to onions so I use powder. About 1/2 Tbs
A touch of red wine..some people use milk, others water, I like the flavor from the wine. Only a few tablespoons to make them a little wet. Mix everything with your hands, form into balls and you can fry them, bake them or drop them into the sauce raw and let them cook in there. I like to put mine all on a cookie sheet and bake them, turning them till they are nice and browned all over, then throw them into the sauce. My dad likes them fried, I like them baked, less mess. Be sure to use fresh ingredients . It makes all the difference!! Hope you like it!
This is not a scam...Try it! Your searching anyways, why not win stuff!?
