Meatballs are the basis of any good italian tomato sauce or ragù...

These meatballs go perfectly with my next 
tomato sauce "instructable" 


1 lb. ground sirloin
2 eggs

1/2 cup of whole milk
1/2 cup of locatelli cheese

3/4 cup of plain bread crumb

optional...(soak day old italian bread in milk instead of using breadcrumbs)

1 tablespoon fresh parsley
1 tablespoon of fresh basil or a few leaves if not dry
a pinch of salt and pepper


In a large stainless steel mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix by hand, by mixing it this way you do not displace the fat in the meat making for a tender meatball.


In a large skillet with olive oil, brown each side of the meatball, then reduce the heat to finish the meat.

These are GORGEOUS!!! I can practically taste them through the screen :) Delicious!

My tastes always migrates back to this cheese, they have been producing fine sheep's milk cheeses for over 500 years. Thats the history lesson for today..LOL and no I do not receive any endorsement money for using there products...<br>
