Joey’s Famous Meatballs


2 Pounds Ground Meat (Ground Sirloin Is Best or a Combo of Beef/Pork/Veal)

2 Eggs

A Little Less Than a box of California Raisins

6 Teaspoons Pinnoli Nuts (Pine Nuts)

4 Tablespoons Grated Romano Cheese

4 Chopped Garlic Cloves

Salt & Pepper To Taste

About a Quarter Loaf of Day Old Italian Bread

Put ground meat in a mixing bowl, add the eggs, the raisins, pinnoli nuts, romano cheese, garlic and salt & pepper.  Next take about a quarter loaf of Italian bread which is a day or two old and slice off the crust leaving on the white of the inside of the bread.  Soak the bread under a faucet with running cold water and then squeeze the water out of the bread.  Pick off small pieces of the bread and toss them into the bowl – You Will Not Use All Of The Bread Just Some Of It According To your Taste.  Mix all the ingredients together by hand and roll the meatballs.  Don’t make them too large.  Place them in a baking pan and place them into a preheated (350° F) oven and bake your meatballs until brown.  They are great to eat just out of the oven or you can put them in a sauce and serve with pasta.
