Well, I made these twice, once as written (that's where the three stars come in, it's only fair to review on the recipe as written), and once with my modifications, which elevates this to five stars. To improve this recipe, use only 1/2 cup cheese (either Parmesan or Romano, or even a combination of both) and add a bit more bread crumbs. Leave out the water, it's so not necessary. And completely disregard the part where you're instructed to fry these in 1 cup oil! Beef and pork have plenty of fat in them already, you do NOT need more oil or fat to fry these up. It just adds a ton of calories and for no good purpose. In fact, you can skip browning these on top of the stove all together and just bake them on a cookie sheet (lined with non-stick foil makes for super easy clean up and no sticking) at 350 degrees F. I also used 4 large cloves of garlic, and added a pinch of oregano and a half teaspoon of basil. Super yummy and much, much healthier (as meatballs go!).
