Directions:
Place ground beef in bowl and combine with egg.
Add bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese, mix together well. Add garlic powder, salt and pepper (eyeball). Mixture should be moist but not “wet”.

Roll meatball mixture into small balls. Place in frying pan with a tiny bit of oil and cook on low until no longer pink inside.

*Grandma recommend using ground beef that has a higher fat content. They cook better at lower temperatures without drying out.

Personal Notes:
Definitely a favorite of the family. I still have very fond memories of Sunday afternoons watching our Grandma Louise sit on chair by her frying pan making meatballs and fried dough pizza. She would often say "Eat a my meatballs" in a thick Italian accent while squeezing our cheeks.
