1 pack ground calf moose [not trying to be cool, it’s just what I got. beef would be awesome too, or any other quality red meat for that matter] some leftover mashed potatoes [cause I had them, and they and ground meat get along] a tbsp or so of soy sauce [mushroomy salty + meat = good] An egg [= glue] Scant tbsp of fennel seeds or so, ground [personal favorite spice with Italian meat dishes] Salt and pepper [apply + (taste+adjust)*(until it’s right)] A tbsp or two of flour mixed into some milk [sloppy panade, likely redudant with the potatoes already pitching in some starch binder] Some home-made tomato sauce [canned tomatoes, few cloves garlic, sugar, and red wine vinegar] Oh yeah, 100g spaghetti per person.
I know. Totally awesome and original recipe. Gong show ingredient list that by no means needs to be adhered to to make a good meatball. But for whatever reason, when done properly, spaghetti and meatballs rocks my world – again and again. I should start a campaign for real spaghetti and meatballs..
