Does anyone know the secret to making the best meatballs? Mine always are either too hard or too soft. I was told by my chef friend that using bread instead of dry bread crumbs works better, but if anyone else knows how to make killer meatballs I'd sure love to be in the club. I always love the meatballs in restaurants but can never copy them at home. Any other good recipes you'd like to share with me would be nice too if you like. Always looking for something new. Thanks for your help.

I was watching some cooking show the other day and they soaked the breadcrumbs in milk. And then the usual Egg and salt and pepper,garlic and whatever spices you like.Onions. Soaking the breadcrumbs in milk supposed to make them moist.

That is the best advice yet. It seems to me I heard that once on a cooking show too but forgot all about it. You, I believe have just fixed my problem and I thank you very much for your advice!!! Carrie

try this one : 1 lb lean groun beef 1/2 cup italian bread crumbs 1/3 cup water 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese 1 medium onion garlic salt pepper mix all ingredients together. Add the water a little a time. Mixture should be moist but not so that the meatballs fall apart. Shape meatballs and place on a brolier and until outside is slightly brown on one side and broil the other side. When finished add to spaghetti sauce and simmer at least 20 minutes..and its ready to serve visit my blog for more meatballs.. http://meatballsrecipe.blogspot.com
