How to make sunday Italian Meatballs (My Special Recipe)

Here is the sunday Italian meatballs. If you want to prepare some fantastic meatballs, this is my special recipe for you, directly from Italy.




Serving: Makes about 12 meatballs


  • 8.81 oz of ground pork;
  • 8.81 oz of ground beef;
  • 2 eggs;
  • ¼ cup + 3 tbsp of grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese;
  • 1/2 glass of milk;
  • 1 tsp of salt;
  • breadcrumbs



1. In a bowl mix the minced meat, eggs, milk, cheese and the salt.

2. Spread a layer of breadcrumbs on a plate.

3. Make meatballs with your hands and dip them in breadcrumbs.

4. Put extra virgin olive oil in a saucepan, heat up and dip the meatballs.

5. Leave to fry for about 6 minutes and place in a dish.

6. Now you can dip them in the sauce.

7. I love to cook them for half an hour in a Bolognese sauce.

8. Alternatively, you can sauté onions; add the tomato sauce and after about ten minutes add the meatballs, continuing to cook for 30 minutes.

9. You may now serve your sunday Italian meatballs.


Note: As I have already explained to you, here in Italy there is no pasta with meatballs.Personally when cooked, I put the meatballs aside and use the sauce to season the pasta (rigatoni or fettuccine). Meatballs in my house are a perfect second course!

    I’m surprised that there are no onions or garlic in the ‘Italian’ meatballs.
