frankfurter balls

Preparation Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 pound frankfurters (beef or pork), finely chopped
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking oil for frying


  1. Prep Frankfurters:
    • Remove the casings from the frankfurters and finely chop them. Alternatively, you can use a food processor for a finer texture.
  2. Mix Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped frankfurters, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, chopped onion, and parsley.
    • Season the mixture with salt and pepper according to your taste.
    • Add the beaten eggs to the mixture and mix thoroughly until well combined.
  3. Form Balls:
    • With clean hands, take portions of the mixture and shape them into small balls, approximately 1 inch in diameter. Ensure the balls are compact and hold their shape.
  4. Heat Oil:
    • In a deep skillet or frying pan, heat cooking oil over medium-high heat. Ensure there is enough oil to submerge the frankfurter balls.
  5. Fry the Balls:
    • Carefully place the formed frankfurter balls into the hot oil, working in batches to avoid overcrowding. Fry until they are golden brown and crispy, usually around 4-5 minutes.
  6. Drain Excess Oil:
    • Once fried, use a slotted spoon to remove the frankfurter balls from the oil, allowing any excess oil to drain.
  7. Serve:
    • Transfer the fried frankfurter balls to a serving platter lined with paper towels to absorb any remaining oil.
    • Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce or as a tasty appetizer.
