Mini Meatballs
Yield: 48 meatballs Prep 15 mins Cook 8 mins to 9 mins


  • 1/2 pound ground veal
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Flour for dredging

Make It

1. Combine veal and pork in a bowl with the egg, cheese, parsley, onion, salt and pepper. Mix well but do not knead. Shape into 1-inch balls, using about 1 heaping teaspoon to form each.

2. Put the oil in a large nonstick skillet and turn the heat to medium-high. One by one, coat the meatballs in flour and add them to the oil. Cook, turning as necessary, until nicely browned all over, 8 to 9 minutes; serve hot or at room temperature.
