I bet you can't eat just three!


1 carrot, finely grated
2 eggs, beaten
1 pound mix of ground chuck, veal and pork
8 tablespoons bread crumbs
8 tablespoons milk
12 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan cheese
6 tablespoons Vidalia onion, finely chopped
4 tablespoons garlic, finely minced
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons capers (approximately)


Combine all the above ingredients in a large bowl (except for capers). Roll meatballs gently into the size of golf balls. Push a few capers into the center of each meatball. Cook in hot extra virgin olive oil, turning frequently, till brown. Add to sauce. Serve with pasta and wine--and love.

Still hungry? Here--have a few more meatballs!

  1. I have to try this recipe, it sounds so delicious.

  2. I can eat more than 10. Maybe because I'm Swedish.) I also cover food on blog. Mostly fashion but some food too. So feel free to come by when you have time.
