How to make it

  • Place the breadcrumbs in a large bowl with 3/4 cup warm water. Mix till well soaked. Add other meatball ingredients. Combine with hands till well disturbed. Form mixture into 2-inch meatballs are arrange on a tray.
  • Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in dutch oven. When hot, add 4-5 meatballs to pan. Do not move them till the side is well browned. These meatballs are soft, so use a gentle hand. When all sides are browned, transfer meatballs to a paper towel-lined tray.
  • Discard the oil. Caution, your pan is going to be really hot so wait a bit for the pan to cool before continuing. Heat tomato sauce in dutch oven. Add the meatballs, cover the pan and simmer them on the lowest heat possible for 25 to 30 minutes, until the meatballs are cooked through.
