  1. Combine the minced meats, softened bread, garlic and parsley. Stir in the egg, Parmesan, some salt and pepper and mix well together. Shape the meat into small balls, approximately the size of walnuts. Dust them in flour and set aside. You can now either fry them or bake them. To fry, heat the oil in a pan and fry the meatballs until golden. Drain on kitchen paper before serving. To bake, pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6 and cook the meatballs for about 20 minutes until golden.
