  • 2

    pounds pecorino dolce freshly grated

  • 2

    cups bread crumbs

  • 6


  • 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


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. This recipe yields 6 servings.
