Meatball Recipes from the “Curtis-Cascione Cook off” Wednesday January 25th

Mark Curtis Meatball Recipe

1 lb ground meat: beef, pork, chicken or turkey

1 cup seasoned bread crumbs

1/4 cup fresh grated or dried parmeasan cheese

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 tsp dried parsley or 1 TBSP chopped fresh parsley

2 cloves garlic crushed or finely chopped

1 tsp fennel seeds

2 TBSP milk

2 TBSP Olive oil and (2) Bay Leaves.

Mix all ingredients except the olive oil. Roll into about 16 to 20 golf ball sized meatballs. Heat olive oil in a frying pan. Saute meatballs turning often until they brown on all sides. Once they are browned, drain the oil and add your favorite tomato sauce from a jar or homemade, plus two bay leaves. Slowly simmer at least one hour. Serve with pasta as an entree…or skewer with tooth picks and serve as appetizers.
