How to Make Meatballsprep time: 10 minutescook time 20 minutesMakes 10 medium meatballs If using oven preheat to 325 degreesMy Grandmother used to use ground beef and pork in her meatballs. But I am partial to beef so I changed that part of the recipe. But you could use 3 parts ground beef to 1 part ground pork if you like.When the meatballs are cooked, have a taste. They are really delicious right out of the frying pan. I sometimes make a sandwich of meatballs and bell peppers without anything else except maybe a dash of olive oil on the bread.
Prep Time 10minutes
Cook Time 20minutes
Total Time 30minutes
1 1/2slices ofwhite bread, soaked in water then squeezed out but still very mushy
1/3cupgrated parmesan cheese
1tblchopped Italian parsley
1garlic clove, smashed with the back of the knife then chopped finely
1/4cupcanola oil frying(optional)
Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and blend together. Don't over mix, ground beef has a tendency to get tough when it is handled too much.
Cook meatballs in a 1/4 cup or less of canola oil. Cook until the are browned well on all sides.
An Alternate cooking method would be to cook meatballs in a 350 degree oven oven. Lay meatballs out on a cookie sheet covered with foil and sprayed with a non-stick spray. Have them about 2 inches apart. Cook uncovered for about 30 minutes, turning them every 10 minutes to make sure all sides are browned.Drop them into you spaghetti sauce or have a hearty meatball sandwich. These meatballs are also good cut up in an Italian omelet.
