Classic Italian Meatballs


1 egg beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
1/2 lb ground veal
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup onion, minced
4 tbs Romano or Parmesan cheese, grated
kosher salt and black pepper to taste
4 tbs olive oil

This is the proper way to make delicious meatballs that contain beef, veal and pork.

  • Beat the eggs and milk together in a large bowl.
  • Add the bread crumbs, and let soak until the liquid has absorbed, about 3 min.
  • Add the meats, parsley, onion, cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Use your hands to mix well.
  • Form the meat balls in your hands about the size of a golf ball.
  • In a heated skillet add the olive oil and saute the meatballs, turning until brown on all sides. About 15 minutes.
  • Remove the meatballs from the oil and drain on paper towels or a wire rack.
  • At this point the meat balls may be added to marinara sauce or served as is.
