Real Italian Meatballs

If you don?t have an expendable bambino on hand, 
you can use a pound of ground pork instead. 
The secret to great meatballs, is to use very lean meat.

1 lb. ground flesh; human or pork
3 lb. ground beef
1 cup finely chopped onions
7 - 12 cloves garlic
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
½ cup milk, 2 eggs
Italian seasoning, etc.
Tomato gravy (see index)
Fresh or at least freshly cooked spaghetti or other pasta

Mix the ground meats together in a large bowl, 
   then mix each of the other ingredients. 
Make balls about the size of a baby?s fist 
   (there should be one lying around for reference). 
Bake at 400°for about 25 minutes - 
   or you could fry them in olive oil.
Place the meatballs in the tomato gravy, and simmer for several hours. 
Serve on spaghetti. 
Accompany with green salad, garlic bread and red wine.

Newborn Parmesan

This classic Sicilian cuisine can easily be turned into Eggplant Parmesan 
If you are planning a vegetarian meal. Or you could just as well use veal - 
after all, you have to be careful - Sicilians are touchy about their young 
family members...

6 newborn or veal cutlets
Tomato gravy (see index)
4 cups mozzarella, 1cup parmesan, 1cup romano
Seasoned bread crumbs  mixed with  
   garlic powder
   chopped parsley
eggwash (eggs and milk)
Peanut oil for frying.

Pound the cutlets. 
Dredge in flour, eggs, then the bread crumb mixture. 
Fry till golden brown in 350° peanut oil. 
In a baking pan, place a layer of gravy, 
   then one of meat, gravy, and cheese. 
Another layer each of meat, gravy, and cheese. 
Then bake at 350° for 45 minutes. 
Serve on hot pasta with romano cheese.

Southern Fried Small-fry

Tastes like fried chicken, which works just as well. 
In fact you may want to practice cutting up whole chickens
