Italian Meat Balls

This is a recipe from my friend Lora Capiciolto...and an awesome recipe it is.

My nieces ask for Lora's meatballs..and will no longer tolerate frozen/bought meatballs. precise measuring.


1lb lean ground beef

1lb ground pork

lots of garlic

lots of Parmesan Cheese

lots of fresh basil

salt and pepper

Italian bread crumbs

2 beaten eggs

oil for frying


Put the ground beef and ground pork in a large bowl, add lots of finely chopped garlic, lots of grated Parmesan cheese, and lots of finely chopped basil, salt and pepper...

Lots of Italian bread crumbs, and 2 beaten eggs..and mix together well.

Using your Tbsp measurer, roll meatballs.

Fry in hot oil, turning  until cooked through.

Drain on paper towels.

Good in sauce, or just on their own..or dipping in sauce as an app.
