Preparation steps

1.
Soak the bread pieces in milk for 5 minutes. Squeeze the bread dry and discard the milk.
2.
In a large bowl, combine the bread, beef, sausage, eggs, parsley, Parmesan cheese, garlic, lemon zest, allspice, salt and pepper. Use your hands to knead until all the ingredients are thoroughly blended. Shape the meat mixture into small balls about 1 1/2-inches in diameter.
3.
Place the sifted flour in a shallow bowl. Coat the prepared meatballs lightly in the flour. Heat 4 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the meatballs for 8 to 10 minutes on all sides, or until browned and cooked through. Drain on paper towels. Serve the meatballs hot or with tomato sauce.
