This delicious recipe is great to recycle advanced ingredients such as bread, white or not. This version, which I present in the photo was made with corn bread to 5 and I must say that the taste of these meatballs was really excellent contact with the palate. Furthermore, this mixture is very well suited to run a meatloaf in the oven. In short, the ingredients with a little imagination you can easily transform into different dishes, with the same taste. I leave you to decide how to enjoy them: meatballs or meatloaf?

1/2 kg of mixed minced meat (beef, pork, turkey)
100g bacon IGP Sudtirol
1 egg
200g stale white bread, or bread to 5 grains
little milk, partially skimmed raw, for bread
Nutmeg powder to taste
chopped parsley to taste
extra virgin olive oil for frying
black pepper

Cut the bacon into small pieces.
Soak the bread in the milk and let soak for a minute. Wring out the bread, milk. Transfer the bread in a bowl along with bacon and meat. Add all other ingredients and knead the mixture. The dough should be firm and pliable. If it is too soft and difficult to work add more bread soaked in milk and then squeezed. Season with salt and pepper. Take little food with your hands slightly moistened with water and make a little round ball. Then with the palm of your hand lightly crushed its surface to flatten a bit. Now you have got a meatball. Continue this process to create other polpetette one until all the dough. Important to try to make the meatballs all the same size, or as a ball golf.Scaldare the oil in a skillet, fry will be ready when it polpettte, then let drain on paper towel to remove excess oil and then , serve the meatballs hot or warm. Similarly you can make a meatloaf prepared, which must be passed first few minutes in a pan with hot oil and then baked at 200 ° until golden crust, while cooking and bathing, with a little vegetable stock.
