This meatball recipe can be made with beef, turkey, or a combination of both. Meatballs can be baked or fried depending on your preference. They can be eaten with a variety of sauces, be served on top of pasta, in sandwiches, right from a crockpot as an appetize,r or even in soup or salad. The versatile meatball is what we love!
It is a kid-friendly dish to make with your children, The kids often enjoy mixing with their hands and rolling the meat into little balls.
1 Pound of Beef or Turkey or a Mix of Both
1/4 Cup of Italian Bread Crumbs
1/2 Cup of Grated Cheese (Parmigiano Reggiano is what I use)
1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
2 Tablespoons of Parsley
1/4 of an Onion Minced
1/8 of a Teaspoon of Salt
1/8 of a Teaspoon of Black Pepper
Oil for Frying
Mix all ingredients together except the oil
Tip: for more tender meatballs the less you mix and roll the better they will be. Obviously, if you are making these with children this will be unavoidable.
