2. In a mixing bowl, add beef, pork, onion, egg, parsley, parmesan, salt and pepper, using hands mix well. Add in the crouton mixture, mix again.

3. Roll the mixture into balls and place in a pan. To the pan add water and olive oil, place over the heated grill and allow to cook for about 45 minutes.

4. In another pan place marinara sauce, arrange the meatballs in the sauce, place on the grill and grill for another 20 minutes.
