A bit high in cholesterol, but otherwise good for you :-) I like to make tiny tiny meatballs to go in this soup, better than the big ones, but I put it in here how the recipe calls for it.

Recipe Ingredients for Italian Wedding Soup


Meatballs:
1 small onion, grated
1/3 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
1 large egg
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 slice fresh white bread, crust trimmed, bread torn into small pieces
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
8 ounces ground beef
8 ounces ground pork
1 Freshly ground black pepper

Soup:
12 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 pound endive, coarsely chopped (1 pound of escarole would be a good substitution)
2 large eggs
2 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan
1 Salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Italian Wedding Soup

  1. To make the meatballs: Stir the first 5 ingredients in a large bowl to blend. Stir in the cheese, beef and pork. Using 1 1/2 teaspoons for each, shape the meat mixture into 1-inch-diameter meatballs. Place on a baking sheet. ( I like to make tiny tiny meatballs, but this is what the recipe calls for).

  2. To make the soup: Bring the broth to a boil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and curly endive and simmer until the meatballs are cooked through and the curly endive is tender, about 8 minutes. Whisk the eggs and cheese in a medium bowl to blend. Stir the soup in a circular motion. Gradually drizzle the egg mixture into the moving broth, stirring gently with a fork to form thin stands of egg, about 1 minute. Season the soup to taste with salt and pepper.

  3. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve. Finish soup with parmesan cheese if desired.
