Cheese Meatballs - {Pallote Pecorino E Uova} 0 Picture


  • 2 pounds pecorino dolce freshly grated
  • 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 garlic cloves sliced
  • 1 bunch Italian parsley finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 quarts olive oil for frying


Servings 6


Step 1

In a large bowl, combine the cheese, bread crumbs, eggs, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper, and mix well.

In a tall-sided pot, heat the olive oil to 375 degrees.

While the oil heats, roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. Fry them in the oil, working in batches to avoid crowding the pan and lowering the temperature of the oil. Cook the balls until uniformly golden brown, about 5 minutes, then remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and serve hot.
