“Family recipe that goes way back. My mother said her uncle would always take a little of the meat and fry her a "hamburger" in the skillet as the rest were in the oven. It's a lot of work, but the results are way worth it. If you are going to make this, make a bunch and freeze it!!!! LOL”

  1. Mince or press the garlic, and chop the parsley into fine pieces (or you can cut the measurement and use dried parsley flakes).
  2. Grate the onion and place in a bowl.
  3. Add all of the ingredients above, except for the olive oil, and mix together in the bowl.
  4. Form balls into the size of golf balls and then dip your hand (or brush) in the oil and then rub it on the balls.
  5. Place on cookie sheet and brown at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  6. I usually add these to my marinara sauce, but you can eat them many other ways as well!
