Caciocavallo silano meatballs: the recipe

Soak the breadcrumbs in a little milk for about five minutes. In the meantime, finely chop the caciocavallo cheese and put it in a bowl, add the squeezed breadcrumbs and mix.

Add an egg, a sprinkling of pepper, a pinch of salt, nutmeg and chopped parsley, then mix all the ingredients together until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. Create small balls and roll them in flour to cover them completely.

Heat plenty of seed oil in a non-stick frying pan, when it reaches the right temperature dip your floured meatballs in the other egg that you have beaten separately with a pinch of salt and then fry them for about five minutes each. When they are golden brown, remove them from the heat and place them on a surface lined with paper towels to dry up the excess oil. Serve hot and enjoy.
