Filanti Meatballs are a tasty second course particularly appreciated and requested by children. A second dish simple to prepare and with few ingredients, the meatballs are a second dish loved by all but in this case they are even tastier with the stringy Monte Veronese cheese filling.
Soak the slice of stale bread in water or milk. In a large dish, mix the minced meat with the egg, salt, pepper and chopped parsley, then add the bacon, and the slice of bread soaked and well wrung out
and continue to mix all the ingredients.
Cut the dough into balls, make a small hollow in the center and put a small piece of Monte Veronese Cheese, close it well so that the cheese does not come out while it is cooking.
Pass the meatballs in the breadcrumbs, and collect them all on a plate.
Put a large pan with oil on a low heat and fry the meatballs on both sides.
if you use a lot of oil, dry the meatballs by passing them on a sheet of absorbent paper. Serve the hot meatballs to get the stringy cheese, but I assure you that they are excellent even cold, perhaps for a picnic or simply for lunch in the office.
