 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         Ground chuck
      1/2  cup           Parmesan cheese -- grated
    1      pound         Ground pork
    4                    garlic cloves* -- (4 to 6)
    3                    While -- smilin' eggs
                         Salt and pepper to taste
    1 1/2  cup           Bread crumbs*
                         Fresh Basil leaves***
 
 * Or enough to hold the mixture together. Try to use leftover French or Italian
bread, and whole wheat crumbs work well also. ** Chopped very fine *** If you
have them on hand (GrandMa Rose always adds fresh basil) YIELD:
 15-18 medium meatballs, or 40-45 tiny meatballs. Combine all the ingredients in a
large bowl. Toss gently with your hands until the meat has become thoroughly
blended with all the seasonings.
 The mixture should be farily moist. 2.	To form the meatballs, wet your hands in
a small bowl of lukewarm water and then pick up about 1/3 cup of the meatball
mixture. Roll it in the palm of your hands to form a smooth ball about 1 inch in
diameter . 3.  Drop the meatballs directly into your basic tomato sauce recipe.
Or, if you prefer a crusty meatball, fry in approximately 3 tablespoons of olive
oil on med heat for about 5 min, turning to brown evenly.  Then drop them into
gently boiling tomato sauce as they are browned. Meatballs take about 20 min to
cook well. (Remember to scrape the bottom of skillet and pour meat particles into
sauce.)
