Cooking tips and tricks
Choosing meat with a higher fat content will result in juicier meatballs and will add more flavor to the sauce.
Keep the meat refrigerated and cool as long as possible. This prevents the fat from breaking down, therefore maintaining the natural juices and flavors of the meat.
Moisture is key in keeping the shape of the meatballs along with making a tender meatball. Milk can be used as a replacement for an egg if needed.
If you do not have breadcrumbs handy, breaking up pieces of bread into small pieces and soaking them in a liquid (i.e. milk) work to bind the meat together.
What are the variations of cheesy Italian meatballs?
Any type of ground meat works in this recipe. If you cannot eat beef, ground pork is a good substitute, but you can also use ground lamb, turkey, chicken, buffalo, or veal.
Add fresh basil and oregano to the meatball mixture to bring more aromatic, fresh flavors to the dish.
How to store meatballs?
Leftover meatballs can be easily frozen, but make sure to do so before adding the cheese topping. Once meatballs are steamed and sauce is finished cooking, transfer items to a foil container. Wrap with plastic wrap and a layer of foil and freeze for up to 3 months.
