How to Make My Special Meatballs

Meatballs are a blast to make! I've known how to do it since I was eight years old.

 

First, you need your basic ingredient, which is about a pound of ground beef. Then, you'll also need one egg, a little bit of milk, garlic powder, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, salt and (only if you want) chopped fresh parsley.

 

I wish I could tell you exactly how much you should put in, but I measure just by eyeballing it.

 

After you mix all those ingredients, you mush, mash and squash them with your hands. Of course, I love the funny feeling when the wetness of the milk and egg come together and squirt through my fingers.

 

To make your meatballs soft and fluffy, you have to "work the meat" just enough. To make the balls, you have to take a scoop (or your fingers) and shape them. As far as size, I like mine small. Then you fry them in a pan on the stove or bake them in the oven until they are brown and cooked all the way through.

 

Thank you for reading this -- I hope you like my meatballs!
