Here is my take on the classic dish.
1 med size pot of your favorite tomato sauce
1/2 pound each of ground beef ,veal and pork( available packaged together at your market)
1/2 onion diced
1 garlic clove diced
1 pureed apple
1 white bread slice pulsed in a food processor ( to make bread crumbs)
1/3 cup grated parmigiano cheese
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil for frying
Combine ground meats, onion, garlic, eggs ,apple puree, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and parmigiano in a large bowl.
Using your hands combine these ingredients well
In the palm of your hands roll a small amount and begin to form balls about the size of a golf ball
Place in a heated frying pan with about 1/3 cup veg. oil and fry until golen brown (turning to brown all sides about 8 mins)
Heat your tomato sauce and place the fried meatballs in sauce and cook on medium heat for about 1/2 hour....enjoy!
**** You can add this to your favorite pasta or eat them on their own using sauce for dipping crusty bread!
