First, in a large bowl, we will mix the ground meat and the pork until the two types of meat are well joined. The secret for the meatballs to be juicy is to make them with a proportion of 70% meat and 30% pork, so the pork meat will bring juiciness to the meatballs while they are cooking. Then, we will add to the bowl the eggs, three spoonfuls of breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper to taste. We finely chop the parsley and one onion and add it to the mixture (if you wish you can fry the onion first and this way it will give more flavor to the meatballs).

Preparation:

The first thing to do is to soak the bread with the milk. Then chop the onion in very small pieces, to mix with the meat, so the smaller the onion pieces are, the better they can be mixed with the rest of the ingredients.

In the same way, parsley and garlic should be chopped well. The minced meat should be placed in a large container and the ingredients that have just been minced, the egg and the bread soaked in milk, should be added. And season to taste with salt and pepper.

If you don’t want to get dirty you can mix it with a fork, you should mix everything very well, or if you want to mix it directly with your hands. Mixing the dough until all the ingredients are perfectly integrated.

 

After this, comes the part that takes the longest, bowl the meatballs. A tip is to first make all the balls at once, then wash your hands and then pass the meatballs through the breadcrumbs, this way you will get less dirty.

If you have children, this is an ideal task for them. To make the meatballs, you must take a small amount of dough in your hands, be careful not to exaggerate, and you will be shaping them into little balls. Once you have all the balls of meatballs, you put the breadcrumbs or flour (if it is the case) in a plate and you batter the meatballs one by one, they must be well covered, but without exceeding the breadcrumbs.

 

In the baking tray, you must place a sheet of vegetable paper, to put all the balls in it once they are battered. This paper is not necessary, but it will be very comfortable for you so that the tray does not get stained. Optionally, place a small amount of olive oil on top of each meatball. This will make them juicier.

The oven must be preheated to 190 C, we bake the balls for about 15 – 20 minutes.

The time will depend on the size of the meatballs, as the bigger they are, the longer it will take to bake them. Halfway through the time, you should turn them so that they are browned on the other side so that they are more uniform.

 

The most crucial thing is that the meatballs are not going to be dry, so you must be attentive to the oven, once 15 minutes have passed we recommend you check how they go. The desired point of cooking is when the center of the meatball is still slightly pink if you want you can open a meatball to confirm the cooking.

 

 

And that’s it, once they are cooked to your liking, you can serve them and accompany them with the sauce you like best.
