Okay, okay, so technically this 100-year old recipe beat Bobby Flay in a “throwdown,” but “smackdown” just sounds so much better. That guy can be a cocky S.O. …well, you know. I haven’t tried them yet, but intend to soon—just as soon as I come up for air amidst all this wedding planning. This week I’ll also be posting a cheesy, meaty, baked Greek pastitisio recipe that will rock your tastebuds, so please stand by. Thanks! In the meantime, here’s the recipe for champion meatballs from the Food Network:
-1 lb. ground chuck
-4 oz. dried bread crumbs
-4 large eggs
-4 oz. whole milk
-6 oz. grated Romano
-3 oz. grated Spanish onion
-2 oz. finely diced fresh garlic
-2 oz. finely chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
-2 oz. finely chopped fresh basil leaves
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.
2. Mix all ingredients thoroughly in large bowl. If mixture seems a little loose add more bread crumbs.
3. Roll meatballs loosely about the size of a golf ball and place on baking sheet. Place into preheated oven for approximately 35 to 40 minutes. Enjoy! [Per the video below, serve with homemade marinara and garnish with fresh chopped basil and more Romano cheese.]
