4 slices of dried bread
1 lb. ground beef
lb. ground pork
1 medium onion, chopped fine
2 eggs, beaten
c. grated Parmesan
2 tbsp. parsley
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. crushed oregano or 2 tsp. dried
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. salt
⅛ tsp. pepper
oil for frying

Soak bread in water for 2-3 minutes; then squeeze out moisture. Combine bread with remaining ingredients except oil, mixing well. Form in small balls (about 20). Brown slowly in hot oil. Add meatballs to spaghetti sauce, cook 30 minutes as in Spaghetti sauce recipe. Serve over hot spaghetti noodles.
*Note- instead of frying meatballs you can add to parchment lined sheet pan and bake at 350 until cooked; this creates a more solid meatball with less grease.
