Pallotte cient and where (cheese and eggs). A luscious Abruzzese recipe that I enjoyed the first time in the wonderful Tinari Peppino restaurant in Guardiagrele, Villa Maiella: I am a cheese lover, Tomato and meatballs and this old dish could not hit me. Since, each time in a restaurant I found pallotte cient and where I always ordered, always finding them good, but not up to the standard of Peppino Tinari. Luckily, I have quite a cookbook written by Tinari, in which it finds its recipe, which is what I leave today. The dish is poor, because it is made only with egg, cheese, stale bread and tomato, but highly caloric. Especially taking into account that these meatballs will become employees within seconds. Is’ easy to love, it is hard to stop eating them from.
I advise you to prepare the cacio and egg balls a few hours in advance, because they will absorb the sauce better and texture will become absolutely perfect. As for cheese, Tinari indicates an Abruzzo cheese and a cow semi-mature: I used a cheese Molise. The recommendation is to scratch the hand cheese, because with the machine used by the grocer they are too finely scratched and the final consistency of meatballs suffers. Do not put salt in the dough of meatballs cacio and eggs: mine is not an oversight, you will see that they are already very tasty thanks to cheese. I hope you will try to prepare, I am sure that the love, both you and your children. If you look for other ideas to good meatballs and simple, of all kinds, have a look at all my RECIPES OF MEATBALLS. Have a good day!
