Ingredients

How to make it

  • Directions
  • In a large bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, basil, parsley, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the eggs and milk. Beat until the yolks are broken and well incorporated with the milk. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Preheat a small fry pan on the stovetop on medium heat, and add the olive oil and garlic. Cook the garlic until it just begins to brown, around 3 to 4 minutes and remove from heat. Set aside at room temperature.
  • Add the ground meat to the bowl with the dry ingredients. Loosely mix the meat with the dry ingredients until slightly incorporated.
  • Add the milk and egg mixture, along with the warm water and the garlic. Combine until fully incorporated. The mixture should be loose but still able to maintain its form.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Form the meatballs into 7 to 8-ounce portions, just bigger than a baseball but not as big as a softball, and put them into a 2-inch deep baking pan. Be sure the sides do not touch to ensure even cooking. Bake until the meatballs reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes. Transfer the meatballs to a serving platter and serve.
