  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Parmesan Parsley Biscuits:
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • In a large bowl, combine flour, 1/2 cup Parmesan, sugar, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Whisk until well blended. Add butter and combine with fingertips until a coarse meal forms. Mix in parsley. Gradually add milk, tossing with a fork until moist clumps form. Add extra milk if mixture is dry. Put dough on a floured work surface, folding 8 to 10 times until it becomes firm. Let rest for 10 minutes under a damp towel. Roll out on lightly floured work surface. Using a 2-inch-diameter biscuit ring, cut out biscuits and put on a parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake until biscuits are puffed and golden, about 15 minutes.

Big Hit for Game 1 of the World Series, GO GIANTS ! Used 1:1 ground beef to ground pork and cooked in large muffin tins with one ice cream scoop of meat. Due to time constraints used Pillsbury Grand Fluffy Biscuts, and pizza sauce. Provolone cheese was perfect. What a way to watch the game , item not reviewed by moderator and published
grilled the meatballs on our charcoal Weber grill...FABULOUS! We used hoagie rolls but followed the recipe for the meatballs and sauce (added a little salt to taste on each) -- so tasty! I can't believe I ate the whole thing!! Will try the biscuits next time, too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used Alton's baked meatballs. My husband is not a meatball lover and he's loving this! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were really good sandwiches. I used 1/2 ground beef and have 1/2 ground pork instead of part veal. Also for the sauce I added some italian seasoning, salt and pepper. They were really good - my 2 year old really liked them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
