I bet you can’t eat just three!


1 carrot, finely grated
2 eggs, beaten
1 pound mix of ground chuck, veal and pork
8 tablespoons bread crumbs
8 tablespoons milk
12 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan cheese
6 tablespoons Vidalia onion, finely chopped
4 tablespoons garlic, finely minced
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons capers (approximately)


Combine all the above ingredients in a large bowl (except for capers). Roll meatballs gently into the size of golf balls. Push a few capers into the center of each meatball. Cook in hot extra virgin olive oil, turning frequently, till brown. Add to sauce. Serve with pasta and wine–and love.

Still hungry? Here–have a few more meatballs!
