Meatball recipe - family favorite

We love my mom's meatball recipe so we are sharing it with "olive" you. Hope your family enjoys these tender meatballs as much as we have through the years.


Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Olive Oil Etcetera - for frying

2 pounds Ground beef

2 Eggs

3/4 cup grated cheese

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 Tablespoons diced parsley

1 1/2 cups bread crumbs


Mix all ingredients thoroughly; then add 1/2 cup water to moisten bread crumbs. Form the mixture into balls and fry in olive oil. Simmer for a 1/2 hour or so in tomato sauce if desired.
