Meatballs boiled

Crunchy outside, soft inside, tasty. They are boiled dumplings, a dish so tasty that recycling, when I boiled, I always put a piece of meat more to do then boiled dumplings. The boiled dumplings are a typical dish of the Roman kitchen and are still (well done) in a matter of great tradition like Happy Inns in Testaccio or to Flavio Velavevodetto. If for Sunday lunches or one of the many lunches and dinners of Christmas you have prepared boiled to make broth tortellini or cappelletti, you've no doubt Chicken, capon or advanced beef.

For white meat I have already proposed to you l’Chicken Salad, green sauce and pomegranate, and beef or veal I suggest these dumplings boiled. An appetizer sfiziosissimo or a second full pot if accompanied with a mixed salad or a plate of chicory buffing, to remain always in Roman cuisine. They are also perfect for a chic cocktail Roman. Is’ can be added to the mixture for meatballs also boiled the crushed potatoes, but I prefer to prepare them without: in my opinion they remain so softer. Have a good day!
