Italian Drink Italian Lunch Italian Meat Recipes


If you want to prepare some fantastic meatballs, this is my special recipe for you, directly from Italy





Makes about 12 meatballs


  • 8.81 oz of ground pork;
  • 8.81 oz of ground beef;
  • 2 eggs;
  • ¼ cup + 3 tbsp of grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese;
  • 1/2 glass of milk;
  • 1 tsp of salt;
  • breadcrumbs



In a bowl mix the minced meat, eggs, milk, cheese and the salt.

Spread a layer of breadcrumbs on a plate.

Make meatballs with your hands and dip them in breadcrumbs.

Put extra virgin olive oil in a saucepan, heat up and dip the meatballs.

Leave to fry for about 6 minutes and place in a dish.

Now you can dip them in the sauce.

I love to cook them for half an hour in a Bolognese sauce.

Alternatively, you can sauté onions; add the tomato sauce and after about ten minutes add the meatballs, continuing to cook for 30 minutes.

As I have already explained to you, here in Italy there is no pasta with meatballs.

Personally when cooked, I put the meatballs aside and use the sauce to season the pasta (rigatoni or fettuccine).

Meatballs in my house are a perfect second course!

    I’m surprised that there are no onions or garlic in the ‘Italian’ meatballs.
