Meatballs are so tasty and the more you make them the better you get! This is the way my grandma made them. Yum, you will love these. A fast light weeknight supper to serve with a wooden bowl of salad.
  • ½ cup Progresso Italian breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1¼ pounds lean ground beef or beef & pork meatloaf mix
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  1. Blend the breadcrumbs with the milk in a small cup and set aside. Combine the ground meat with the egg, cheese, salt, pepper, garlic, parsley, and the bread crumb paste in a large bowl until well blended. Roll the mixture into twelve portions, 2 inches in diameter. I use a metal ice cream scoop to portion meatballs.
  2. Heat a film of olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat and brown the meatballs on all sides. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Prepare a pot of Fifteen Minute Italian Red Sauce, adding the meatballs plus all the juices from the bowl. Lower heat and simmer 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Serve on a plate with a scoop of ricotta if desired and a lightly dressed green salad.
