OLD SCHOOL ITALIAN MEATBALLS


This is a family recipe passed down to me from my grandmother who got it passed down from her mother, and so on.

 

 

Serves 25-30 meatballs

INGREDIENTS:

 

  • 3/4 pound gr. sirloin
  • 1/2 pound gr. veal
  • 1/4-1/2 pounds gr. pork
  • 1/2-1 cups Italian style bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated romano cheese
  • 1/2 bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1-2 teaspoons crushed red pepper, or more if you like things hot
  • 2 teaspoons basil
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely diced
  • salt and pepper as desired
  • Splash of milk

 

METHOD

Add all the ingredients in a large bowl.

Mix well with hands. If mixture is to dry add a splash or two of milk until you can form into balls.

Place meatballs on a cookie sheet, or shallow baking dish.

Bake meatballs in preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes depending on size, or until no longer pink.

 

Add homemade tomato sauce?
