I found the basics of this recipe in an old Italian cookbook. The original recipe didn’t call for pork or dropping the meatballs in breadcrumbs and used marjoram instead of nutmeg. It’s a simple recipe, but the best meatball recipe I have ever tried.
I created this recipe for my kids, who liked the marinated chicken of a local deli. It came out very similar to theirs and got a definite thumbs up from my kids. If you have the time to marinate it for 24 hours, it turns out much tastier!
