Meatballs are not taken lightly at our house. We spent the first 15 years of our marriage in St. Louis. Here is where we got a real feel for the heart and soul of St. Louis, “The Hill”. This section of St. Louis is where Italian immigrants settled. If you want an Italian meal, casual, or white tablecloth, the “Hill” is where you head. If you get there before 5pm, you can buy some incredible ingredients from the local grocery stores!
While we lived there, we watched a news noon program that featured local chefs. Vince Bommarito of Tony’s restaurant made it clear that the use go good meat, and no fillers was the way to go.
To this day, we use no egg, or bread crumbs, and we always use ground veal. We hope you enjoy these on top of a big plate of pasta, polenta, or just by themselves.
