  • 3/4 pounds Ground Beef
    3/4 pounds Ground Pork
    3 cloves Garlic, Minced
    3/4 cups Fine Bread Crumbs
    2 whole Eggs
    3/4 cups Freshly Grated Parmesan
    1/4 cup Flat-leaf Parsley, Minced
    1/4 teaspoon Salt
    Freshly Ground Black Pepper
    Splash Of Milk
    1/2 cup Olive Oil
    1.  To make the meatballs, combine meat, garlic, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, eggs, salt, pepper, parsley, and a splash of milk in a mixing bowl. Mix together well with hands. Roll into 25, 1-1/2-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place cookie sheet into the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to firm up the meatballs.

    2. To brown the meatballs, heat olive oil in a heavy pot or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add meatballs 8 at a time, turning to brown. Remove and drain on a paper towel after each batch.   If adding to a marinara sauce, etc add and cook for 20 minutes or so until meatballs are cooked through.  If not adding to a sauce place on baking sheet and bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes.
