Beat eggs well. Grate garlic into beaten eggs. Add bread crumbs and mix well. Add cheeses, pepper, baking powder, and parsley. Add a few scrapes of nutmeg and stir well. The mixture should be like biscuit dough, easy to handle.
Form into golfball-sized balls. Flatten to 1-inch patties. Place on a sheet of waxed paper and set aside.
In a medium frypan over high heat, add oil and fry patties until browned, about 3 minutes each side.
In a large saucepan, bring Tomato Sauce to a simmer. Gently add cheese patties. Cover and cook 20 minutes. Patties will rise to the surface like dumplings. Serve with pasta and fresh Italian bread.
Makes 2 dozen polpette.
