Great Pretenders




  1. Mix all ingredients except breadcrumbs. Form the mixture into 2-inch balls. Spread crumbs on wax paper. Roll balls in crumbs/cover all around.
  2. In a large skillet, over medium heat, with enough oil to come up 1/4 inch, fry the balls on all sides until done, approximately 10 minutes.
  3. Use with your favorite sauce or pasta or as is.

And oh yes, they're Great Pretenders
