This was the first time I'd used fresh bread to make my bread crumbs, and I really do believe it made all the difference (I also used the fresh bread for these balls, too).
These balls did require a bit more work than the last, in that they required a brief stint in my grill pan prior to baking. But it was well worth it.
The F didn't even think that these balls required sauce, which is saying a great deal as he prefers nearly all foods with sauce. These were great reheated as well as an appetizer, and would be ideal thrown on top of some spaghetti.
The F is in the throes of planning our honeymoon and telling me enough to make me want to know more but not enough so that I have any idea what he's planning. I do, however, have reason to believe that it will involve Europe and yours truly rockin' these:
Miu Miu via Barneys
Flat, comfortable-looking, and go with any and everything. Perfect for a European honeymoon. Or a beach honeymoon. Or a safari honeymoon. Or an Alaskan honeymoon. Ok, maybe not that.
