Dom’s Mom’s Meatballs
2 pounds ground chuck
½ pound of ground pork
2 cups Italian-flavored bread crumbs
1 cup milk
1 cup fresh parsley chopped
1 cup grated cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped very fine
1 onion, minced
½ cup pignoli (pine nuts) (optional)
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. Let stand ½ hour. Shape into medium-size meatballs. Fry gently in olive oil until lightly browned, or place on foil on a cookie sheet and bake for ½ hour at 350 degrees. Gently place in your own hot spaghetti sauce and cook on medium-low heat for 1 hour.
Dom’s note: Quadruple the recipe (you’ll have about 100 meatballs) and then place the meatballs on large Teflon baking pans. After they’re baked and cooled, put 20 at a time in large Ziploc bags and pop them in the freezer. Then they’re ready, willing and able anytime.
