Serves Serves 6
9 slices white bread, divided
1 1/2 pounds meatloaf mixture (a combination of ground beef, pork and veal)
1 egg
1 cup milk
Salt and pepper
A large handful Locatelli grated cheese
6 to 8 large cloves of garlic, ground fine in a food processor
Vegetable Oil, for shallow frying

Pulse 6 slices of white bread in a food processor to make homemade breadcrumbs. Combine homemade breadcrumbs with meat, egg, milk, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Cut crusts off remaining 3 slices of bread. Break the pieces up with your hands and combine with meat mixture. The mixture should be very loose.

Using 2 soup spoons, form the meat into balls and fry the balls in oil until brown.
