Recipe by Ilysse
This is a meatball dish from Romania. I found it on a website while trying to find a meatball dish my great-grandmother use to make. I havn't tried them yet but will let you know when I do. If you try them first let me know what seasonings you use. I put this here for now because I came to the realization that I don't make anything unless its in my Recipezaar cookbook anymore. I think this is from The Hadassah Jewish Holiday Cookbook and they recomend it for Passover. I hope you enjoy it. Cooking times are guesses.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ground beef or 1 1⁄2 lbs ground veal or 1 1⁄2 lbs ground turkey, is ok
