Meat balls

2 lbs lean ground beef 8 -10 slices white bread, broken into small 1/2 inch pieces (or you can use rolls or any stale bread you have and want to use up) 2 eggs, slightly beaten 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste) 1 teaspoon italian seasoning (or to taste) 2 teaspoons parsley flakes (or to taste) 1/4-1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (or Locatelli) 1 -2 teaspoon salt 1/4-1/2 teaspoon black pepper olive oil or vegetable oil (for frying) 1 Mix all ingredients gently in a large bowl until well combined. 2 Roll meatballs 1 1/2- 1 3/4" in diameter. 3 Heat about 1/4" of oil over medium heat in a large frying pan. 4 Fry meatballs in oil, rolling frequently, until evenly browned and juices run clear. 5 Drop meatballs in your favorite sauce and let simmer for awhile to flavor sauce or just serve with your favorite pasta and sauce. 6 Tip: You can also bake or broil these if the frying part is too much of a hassle--
