  • Yield: 20 servings ( Serving Size: 1 oz meatballs )


  • 1/3 pound(s) ground veal
  • 1/3 pound(s) ground pork
  • 1/3 pound(s) ground beef
  • 1 slice(s) white sandwich bread torn
  • 3/4 cup(s) milk

  • 2/3 cup(s) parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/3 cup(s) pecorino grated
  • 2 tablespoon(s) flate leaf parsley chopped

  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) ground pepper
  • 1 clove(s) garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup(s) tipo 00 or all purpose flour

Combine the meat, bread, milk, egg, cheese, parsley, salt, pepper and garlic in a mixer fited with a flat blade. Mix on medium-low speed for 1 minute.

Scoop out 1/8 cup portions of meat and gently roll between your hands, forming golf ball-size servings. Put flour in a bowl and toss meatballs in the flour as you work.

Place the grapeseed oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add the balls; cook until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. The internal temperature should be about 155 degrees.

Served with the simplest marinara: Italian canned tomatoes, chopped and then simmered for 30 minutes wiht a little salt.
