How to Make Meatballs by Rose


  1. Remove the insides of the Italian bread break apart and soak it with the milk. Add to the ground meatleaf mix, bread, eggs, parsley, garlic, grated cheese, chopped parsley. Hand mix thoroughly. Shape into meatballs. I use the size of an ice cream scooper. Saute meatballs in a little olive oil until golden brown. Remove from oil and place into your sauce. Heat on a extremely low flame for 2 hours.
