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.
Sorry...no 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.
