Why do my meatballs fall apart?
ANSWER: Usually when meatballs fall apart, it’s the binder that is the problem. Most meatball recipes call for using bread crumbs and eggs. Similar issues can be caused by eggs: Too many eggs, and the meatballs will be too soggy. With the bread crumbs, many recipes call for fresh or dry bread crumbs.
Is it better to fry or bake Italian meatballs?
Frying or baking the meatballs first develops a crust, so they stay together better, though the crust means they’re not quite as tender as a poached meatball. But then some people like that textural contrast between the exterior and interior of the meatball. Browning also gives the meatballs a nice flavor.
Why do you put milk in meatballs?
