Ingredients for 8 servings

For the meatballs:

1/3 C. chopped fresh Italian parsley

1 large egg

1 tsp. minced garlic

1 slice fresh white bread, crust trimmed, bread torn into small pieces

½ C. grated Parmesan

½ lb. ground beef

½ lb. ground pork

Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

For the soup:

12 C. chicken stock

3 stalks celery, cut into small dice

3 carrots, cut into small dice

1 small onion, chopped

1 lb. escarole, chopped

2 large eggs

2 Tb. freshly grated Parmesan, plus extra for garnish

Salt and freshly ground black pepper



To make the meatballs: Stir the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl to blend. Stir in the cheese, beef and pork. Using 1½ teaspoons for each, shape the meat mixture into ½” diameter meatballs. Place on a baking sheet.


To make the soup: Bring the stock to a boil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add celery, carrots and onion. Cook until tender. Add the meatballs and escarole and simmer until the meatballs are cooked through and the escarole 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 strands of egg, about 1 minute. Season the soup with salt and pepper.


Ladle the soup into bowls and serve. Finish soup with additional Parmesan and serve with crusty Italian bread.
