More to Chew On: Mario's Meatball Guide

By The Chew Crew Jan 09, 2013

Here at The Chew we love a good meatball sandwich, spaghetti with meatballs and really anything involving a meatball.  That’s why we dedicated an entire show to these tasty meat patties.

Before you cook your next batch check out some of Mario’s tips.  There are certain dos and don’ts that you should bare in mind while whipping them up.  Mario suggests using a fatty cut meat, because it will give the dish more flavor.  He also blends a cup of breadcrumbs with every pound of meat.

However, he also warns against overworking your meatball.  This could make it tough and unpleasant.  Finally, Mario says don’t be afraid to bake.  Now, get cooking!
