I believe this is the final recipe from my “John & Caryn” collection.
1 lb ground beef
2 cloves garlic
1 cup Parmesan
1 1/2 T parsley
s & p
2 cups bread crumbs
1 1/2 cups lukewarm water (1/2 cup at a time)
Form into 2″ balls.
Heat 1 cup olive oil in a skillet and fry the meatballs in batches. When very brown and slightly crispy, remove from heat to paper towels. If they fall apart when cooking, cover.
Cook fried meatballs in tomato sauce 15 minutes.
