Ingredients

1 small loaf stale Italian bread (about 8 thick slices) torn into 2 1/2” chunks

2 pounds of 80% lean ground beef chuck, broken up

5 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped

1⁄2 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1 1⁄2 cups grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Grana Padano
