* RECIPE: MONTREAL MEATBALLS
3 kg of meat, preferably a mix of 1 kg pork and 2 kg beef, makes 50 meatballs
The following amounts depend on how much minced meat is used: chopped onion (extremely fine); one or two eggs; a little oil; a little milk; parsley; one or two grated tomatoes (optional, for a great taste); salt; pepper; oregano; a little curry; any other spices you might like; crumbed toasted bread (φρυγανιά)

Once you have prepared your meat, let it rest in the fridge for a couple of hours, then make your meatballs in the shape you like. Roll them in a little flour (optional) or fry them directly. The oil shouldn't be too hot because they will burn on the outside and be raw on the inside.
