Egg Balls | Meatless Meatballs | Buddy Valastro

Servings: 20 balls
Source: Egg Balls | Meatless Meatballs | Buddy Valastro


12 eggs, beaten

2 cups grated Parmesan

2 cups seasoned breadcrumbs

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

A small handful parsley, chopped

1 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons olive oil


Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix until the consistency matches a thick cream. Let the batter sit on the counter for 10 minutes.

Form the mixture into balls and drop right into boiling marinara sauce. Poach them in the sauce for 8-10 minutes, or until firm.


"Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro's egg balls — ie. vegetarian meatballs, or what Rach calls "garlic bread balls" — are essentially meatless "meatballs."

Buddy's Pro Tips:

1. When you roll the egg balls out, put a little olive oil on your hands so they don't stick.

2. When you put the egg balls in the sauce, don't stir them! That way, they cook through and the egg firms up nicely.
