When I used to make meatballs, they were only ok. As I have learned a few things as well as watched a lot of cooking shows, I have learned a couple of basic tips to make your meatballs flavorful and moist. So I wanted to share this Tuesday’s Tip – Italian meatballs so you too can make really good meatballs. Let me know if there are secrets you have learned or maybe learned from your parents or grandparents for tricks making meatballs. It would be really cool if you shared with my audience and me some ancestral recipes.
So you ask, what are the tricks? Since turkey is leaner than beef be sure to add in moisture with either milk or some tomato sauce. I feel the tomato sauce adds some depth to the meatballs. Also, be sure to mix in some sausage. The turkey needs the spiciness. But the real key though? Fresh herbs.
