Meatballs – You will LOVE these!

Every single one of us in this house love these meatballs.   I always double this recipe and sometimes that still isn’t enough! Simple and Delicious!!

Meatballs

Ingredients

October 037

1 slice of white bread
1/4 cup milk
1# ground beef
1/2# ground pork
1/2 cup of chopped red onion (you could use white onion too)
1 egg
1/2 cup grated parmesan
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste (I would use 1/2 teaspoon salt for this recipe)
2 Tablespoons olive oil

1.  I always double this recipe.  1# of meatballs is not enough for this family that is for sure!  In a bowl soak the bread in the milk.  This is called a panade and is a very important step.  This makes the meatballs moist and delish!October 035
2.  In a medium bowl, mix the ground beef, ground pork, bread and milk, onions, parsley, egg, cheese, and garlic.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  
3.  Form the mixture into about 12-15 meatballs, depending on the size you like (When I do 2# I get 30-32 meatballs)
4.  Put olive oil in non stick skillet.  Fry meatballs over medium to medium high heat until browned on each side.  When I make meatballs I usually am adding to a sauce to cook through.

Also, I fry 10-12 meatballs at a time in the skillet.  Don’t over fill the skillet or you will steam the meatballs and not get that golden crust.  Since I usually have more than 10-12 meatballs after each frying session, I wipe out the oil and start with a clean skillet and start all over.  That way they fry up perfect. 😉

If you are going to make the meatballs and not add to a sauce, brown them in the skillet then transfer to a foil lined baking sheet.  Place in a preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.  You could also cook them through in the frying pan.  I have done it both ways.

Enjoy!!
