How to make it
- For the meatballs: In a large bowl, mash the bread and milk together to form a smooth paste.
- Add the ground meats, Manchego, parsley, yolk, garlic, salt, and pepper to the mashed bread and mix until uniform.
- Shape the mixture into 1/2-inch-round meatballs (1 teaspoon per meatball; you should have 35 to 40 meatballs).
- Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering.
- Add half of the meatballs and brown on all sides, about 10 minutes.
- Transfer the meatballs to a paper towel-lined plate and repeat with the remaining meatballs.
- Discard all but 1 tablespoon of the oil left in the skillet.
- For the sauce: Add the onion to the oil left in the skillet and cook over medium heat, scraping up any browned bits, until very soft and lightly browned, 6 to 9 minutes.
- Stir in the tomato and cook for 1 minute.
- Stir in the broth, wine, and bay leaves, then carefully return the meatballs to the skillet.
- Cover and simmer until the meatballs are just cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes.
- While the meatballs cook, mash together the parsley, almonds, garlic, saffron, paprika, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and a pinch pepper.
- When the meatballs are cooked, remove and discard the bay leaves.
- Stir the saffron mixture into the sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Transfer the meatballs and sauce to a serving dish and serve immediately.
