This was my first time making meatballs in a skillet and maybe I did something wrong, but putting them in a skillet with a cup of oil is not a good idea. Holy oil spatter!!! I think I have multiple oil burns on my hands and arms, wow. Besides the oil the meatballs were good although I do not think I will makes these specific meatballs again.

This recipe is the basis for good meatballs but there's NO way I'd use a cup of oil and fry them in a skillet. Simple solution? I bake them in the oven on cookie sheets at about 375 for about 20 mins and then I turn them over and bake for another 15. You could line the cookie sheets with foil to make clean up easier. Some people spray their cookie sheet with cooking spray. Gets them all done at the same time, no oil, and alot less fuss on the stove top.

I was raised on a similiar recipe. No veal only beef & pork. Instead of using the day old italian bread dry, we would put in a strainer wet thoroughly then squeeze out mostly all the water. Makes for a very moist meatball. Also, I only coat my pan with olive oil do no deep fry meatballs Brown them then let them finish cooking in the sauce or bake them in the oven.
