1/2 cup whole milk

3/4 cup parmesan cheese , finely grated (Romano may be substituted. For best flavor, splurge on a chunk of cheese rather than use the caniste)

1 cup unseasoned breadcrumbs

1 cup beef broth

2 tablespoons dried oregano

2 lbs ground chuck (80-85% is good. I don't recommend using very low fat beef for these, they won't have the right textu)

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 cup beef broth (the low sodium variety is recommended)

3 eggs , beaten

1 pinch nutmeg (fresh grated is best)

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (I usually cut this in half since most of my family is very spice-sensitive)

1 tablespoon garlic , minced

1 tablespoon ground pepper (I recommend fresh ground for better flavor)

1/2 cup chopped parsley (fresh, not dried)
