Sweet and Sour Meatballs

January 22, 2015

This is the fast way to have some special hors d’oeuvres before dinner or a great snack for some unexpected guests for cocktails. My secret is that I always make a double portion of meatballs and freeze the second batch.


Sweet and Sour Meatballs


For the Meatballs

  • 1 Sm. Onion (grated)
  • 1/3 C. Italian Parsley (finely chopped)
  • 1 Lg. Egg
  • 1 t. Minced Garlic
  • 1 t. Salt
  • 1 Slice White Bread (crust removed and crumbled)
  • 1/2 C. Parmigiano-Reggiano (freshly grated)
  • 1/2 lb. Ground Beef
  • 1/2 lb. Ground Pork

  1. Make the meatballs; Stir the onion, parsley, egg, garlic, salt and bread together and combine thoroughly
  2. Add the cheese, pepper, beef and pork and combine with the egg mixture
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees; Make into 1″ balls and bake for approx. 30-35 minutes (set aside)
