  • 250 g of minced meat (beef)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 slices of loaf bread
  • Bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
  • Garlic
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Parsley


  • Put the meat, the egg, the parsley, half a clove of minced garlic in a large enough bowl (no more!!! This quantity only gives a pleasantflavor to the dish), the 2 tablespoons of grated cheese, salt and a some pepper. In a dish, soak two slices of bread loaf in milk after removing the edge.
  • Squeeze the slices of toasted bread to eliminate the absorbed milk, reduce into crumbs and add to the minced meat, mix with your hands to incorporate all the ingredients if the mixture is too wet add a handful of grated bread to the mixture
  • Shape into balls (if you want them small then the spherical shape is fine) be careful because on the outside they immediately becomecrunchy and dark, the risk of making them too large is that they come out burnt and raw inside, so it is preferable to make them small or larger but crushed onboth sides!
  • Fry in hot oil, the meatballs must be at least half immersed in the oil. If they are few, use a small pan… GOOD APPETITE!!!
