(FOX 2) - Chef Bobby joined us this morning to share his best meatball recipes and talk about the upcoming Meatball Classic. Watch in the video player above.
See below for the Chef Bobby's recipe for Quick Meatballs.
2/3 cup fresh breadcrumbs seasoned
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup fresh grated Pecorino cheese with black peppercorns
1/4 cup finely diced onion
3 tablespoons minced parsley
Pinch of nutmeg
1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil
1 large egg
1 clove garlic minced
Salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 pound ground pork sausage
1/2 pound ground beef chuck
Preheat oven to 350F
Lightly oil a baking sheet.
In a bowl soak the breadcrumbs in the milk; let stand a couple of minutes. Mix in all remaining ingredients in order given and combine well. Mix by Hand only. DO NOT USE A MIXER! IT MAKES THE MEAT LIKE RUBBER. BE GENTLE
Wet your hands and form mixture into meatballs then flatten slightly so they are disk-shaped. Place them on the baking sheet and cook until nicely browned; internal temp of 155F
Serve on bed of Rigatoni and tomato sauce or just plain as a second course. Gluten-Free Option over a crisp mixed green salad.
