1.
In a large bowl combine beef, Parmesan cheese, parsley, onion, egg, salt and pepper. Blend bread crumbs into the meat mixture. Shape into 20 meatballs.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Fry meatballs in batches. Cook thoroughly, remove from heat and drain on a paper towel.
3.
Slice cucumbers in twenty 1 inch round pieces - to use for base.
4.
Prepare rice paper per package instructions. Place cooked meatball in the center of the rice paper. Tie with chive stem.
