Italian Meatballs

(serves 2-3 ppl)
(prep and cook time 45 mins)

Ground beef 1 1/2 lbs
Bread crumbs I used a food processor to grind 1 1/2 slices of Dave's-Good Seed-killer bread!
Whole milk 3 Tbs
Egg 1 large (lightly beaten)
Crimini mushrooms 1/4 cup (chopped fine)
Onions 1/3 cup (chopped fine)
Parmesan reggiano 1/4 cup (shredded fine)
Parsley 1 whole bunch (stems removed and chopped fine)
Oregano 1 tsp
Chili flakes 1 tsp *optional
Salt 1/2 tsp
Pepper 5-6 grinds
Olive oil 4 Tbs for pan frying the meatballs


Soak the bread crumbs in milk.
Combine all the ingredients (minus the olive oil) in a large mixing bowl.
Mix gently.
Form tennis ball size meatballs.
Heat up some oil in frying pan and lightly sear all sides of the meatballs.
Drop the meatballs in warm marinara sauce and let them simmer for 25 mins or until done.

I served this on some whole wheat spaghetti.
Hope you like :-)
