My Mom's FAMOUS Meatball recipe! This is the most requested dish of hers (cooked in her homemade sauce). Whenever there's a shower, birthday, christening, etc., someone is asking for 150 to 200 of her famous meatballs and of course, she always says "Yes"! (I get about 36 meatballs out of this recipe...serves our family of six, with leftovers for Meatball sandwiches.)

2
Pound
Ground Beef
(lean)
8
Slice
bread
(White or Italian)
2
Eggs
(Slightly beaten)
1/2
Teaspoon
Black pepper
1
Teaspoon
garlic powder
2
Teaspoon
Salt
1/4
Cup
Parmesan Cheese
(up to 1/2 cup, can use Romano or a blend)
1
Teaspoon
Italian seasoning
(1-2 tsp. according to taste)
1/2
Teaspoon
Parsley flakes
2
Tablespoon
Olive Oil
(or vegetable oil, for frying)

Directions

  1. 1. Mix all ingredients gently in a large bowl until well combined.
  2. 2. Roll meatballs 1 1/2- 1 3/4" in diameter.
  3. 3. Heat about 1/4" of oil over medium heat in a large frying pan.
  4. 4. Fry meatballs in oil, rolling frequently, until evenly browned and juices run clear.
  5. 5. Drop meatballs in your favorite homemade sauce/gravy and let simmer for awhile to flavor sauce or just serve with your favorite pasta and sauce.
  6. 6. Tip: You can also bake or broil these if the frying part is too much of a hassle-- I use my broiler pan if I bake them, so the fat drips down and away from the meatballs.
