Gangster Meatballs

We recently rewatched Goodfellas, and, what can I say? We’re older and fatter, so what we took away from it was:  we have to  make those meatballs.

Okay, so we didn’t do this. But we did go out in the rain with flashlights to harvest some fresh basil. So hardcore!

We are having family over tomorrow, and are making a quadruple recipe.  They are the meatballs of happiness and delight.  You must make them now.  Here is the recipe.   You can thank me later when you recover from your meat delight coma.

    Thanks for this! I’ve been making a fab meatball recipe that’s been in our family at least 50 years, but I’m going to have to try this one

    What I wouldn’t give for an occasional plate of meatballs and spaghetti.

    May you never order linguine with marinara and receive egg noodles with ketchup instead.

  • Hmm, my mother puts in a dash of milk to soften the meatballs. But she only uses ground beef. You only watched that movie for the first time now? It has to be around for close to 20 years. Excellent movie by the way, and probably a lot more realistic than The Godfather.

    Now I need to rewatch GoodFellas…

    I used a razor to slice garlic once, being also inspired by the movie.

    Freakin’ hard to do. Garlic is sticky.
