Meatballs

I had my wisdom teeth removed and I'm constantly craving meat. Petar made this for himself...I'm starving. It smells so amazing! Thank you ATK for the starting recipe :-)

Ingredients
1 pound of ground beef
0.5 pound of ground pork
0.75 tsp gelatin
1.5 tbsp water
1 cup breadcrumbs
0.75 cup buttermilk
2 small eggs
3 oz Prosciutto
2 oz Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic
3 tbsp chopped parsley
1 tsp salt
0.25 tsp black pepper
0.5 onion

Preparation
Mix the gelatin with the water. Allow to bloom. Soak the breadcrumbs in the buttermilk. Add the meat to the soaked breadcrumbs, combine with the beaten eggs and the minced prosciutto.

Add the cheese, grated garlic, grated onion, chopped parsley and the gelatin. Add the salt and black pepper and mix until homogeneous, but not overmixed.

Using a quarter-cup measure scoop into balls and shape between your palms. Place onto a cookie rack set in a baking sheet. Roast in a 450F oven for 30 minutes.

Finish cooking in a tomato sauce. Serve over pasta.
