"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Eggplant Meatballs
Eggplant Meatballs
(Polpette di Melanzane)
2 large eggplants (1 and 1/2 lbs or about 650 grams), peeled and cut into quarters lengthwise
2 oz (60 grams) of stale Italian bread
1 to 2 eggs
3 tablespoons Pecorino-Romano cheese, freshly grated
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 bunch Italian parsley, chopped to yield 1/4 cup
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3 oz (80 grams) of Caciocavallo cheese (stringy Italian semi-soft cheese)
Tomato sauce
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil, for frying
Wash, peel, and cube eggplant.

In a large pot, bring water to a full boil, add salt and the eggplant cubes.

Cook for about 4 minutes at full boil.

Drain the eggplant using a fine mesh colander.

Discard the liquid and let cool.

Place all the eggplant pulp in a cheese-cloth and remove as much excess water as possible.

Place in a large bowl.

Add grated stale Italian bread, 1 egg, 3 tablespoons Pecorino-Romano cheese, garlic and parsley.

Mix everything together with a wooden spoon at first.

Form eggplant mixture into little balls about the size of a golf ball.

Poke hole in center.

Fill with a cube of Caciocavallo cheese.

Press mixture over the filling.

Roll the ball lightly in the bread crumbs.

Place into hot 340F (170C) oil and fry until brown on all sides and eggplant is cooked all the way through.

Place on paper towels to drain.

Serve with (spicy) tomato sauce on the side for dipping.
