In honor of national meatball day, here's a simple receipe.
1 pound of ground beef
1/2 pound of ground veal
1/2 pound of ground pork
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup of freshly grated Romano cheese
1 1/2 teaspoon of chopped Italian parsley leaf
2 cups of stale Italian bread, crumbled
1 1/4 cup of lukewarm water
1 cup of olive oil
* Combine beef, veal and pork in large bowl. Add garlic, eggs, cheese, parsely, salt and pepper.
* Blend bread crumbs into meat mixture. Slowly add water, 1/2 cup at at time. The mixture should be very moist but still hold it's shap. Shape into meatballs
* Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Fry meatballs in batches. When meatballs are brown and slightly crisp remove from heat and drain on paper towel.
Feel free to add to a pot of sauce on low to keep them hot.
