Today is a day to remembers. Today 8 bloggers from around the world get together for the first time to start World on a Plate.
World on a Plate is a monthly blogging event at which bloggers from around the world get together and share a typical recipe from their home country. This month is our first post and we are super excited to get started!
For our first time we decided to interpret Meatballs! We are starting out strong with members from all over the world to interpret meatballs in 8 different ways. Biren is offering a Malaysian meatball, Ewa a Swedish one, Katherine an American one, Hyosun a Korean one, Raymund a Philippine, Sofie a German, Vijitha a Southern Indian and I am offering an Italian one. I hope you will check out what everyone has done and take the time to discover more about World on a Plate!
For my meatballs, I decided to make the meatballs I grew up with. This meatballs are not the ones you usually think of when you think about Italian meatballs. There is no tomato sauce and they are not made starting from raw ground beef. They are made from leftover cooked meat and they are by far the most common meatballs in North Italy.
This version of meatballs is made with any kind of meat leftovers, it doesn’t matter whether it is beef, chicken, pork or something more unusual like rabbit. When you are tired of eating the leftover meat, you get your food processor and create these wonderful meatballs.
In the recipe I intentionally give no doses, because this recipe is by nature a bit different every time. It is made with leftovers and you are not supposed to go out and buy stuff to make this recipe. Just open the fridge and use whatever needs using: the meatballs will be great!
