  • 2 lb Grnd beef -- *
  • 2 tsp Garlic, chopped -- **
  • 2 tsp Parsley
  • 1 med Onion -- finely minced
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 c. Progesso Italian Flavored Breadcrumbs (approx.)
  • 1 x Egg
  • 3/4 c. Parmesian Cheese


  1. * The old country way is a mix of 1/3 beef, 1/3 pork and 1/3-veal grnd together. But I think beef is much better.** Heaping Tsp., save time by using the jar of pre-minced garlic. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl with your hands making sure everything is well mixed. Form into meatballs and fry*** in a large skillet with about 1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil over medium high heat. Turn on all sides to brown and cook through. When all the way cooked, add in them to your sauce and let them cook slowly for about 1 hour.*** Can also be browned in the oven on a baking or possibly broiler rack. This will produce less greasy but also drier meatballs.
  2. Note: April'sancestors (on both sides) go back to Italy. I do not think the same is true for her husband!
