Quail egg stuffed meatballs in mustard sauce

Recipe (4 servings) ingredients:

For the meatballs:

  • 600g minced veal
  • 2 eggs
  • 20 boiled quail eggs (for 20 meatballs)
  • 6 slices of pancetta
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 100ml milk
  • 1 big onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt, pepper

In a bowl, pour the milk and soak the bread in it until the milk is fully absorbed. In the meantime, in a frying pan, saute the finely chopped onion in olive oil together with the sugar, over medium heat (for about 4-5 minutes). Once the onion becomes translucent, remove from the fire. Chop the parsley and add it in a large bowl together with the minced meat and the onion. Add the 2 eggs and the soaked bread in the bowl and mix well with your hands. Season with salt and pepper. Form the meatballs in the size you want. Open each meatball in half, dig a small hole and place the boiled quail egg in it. The cover it and repeat the same for all 20 meatballs. Once you finish, fry the meatballs in the sunflower oil for about 20 seconds on each side and place them on a plate layered with oil-absorbing kitchen paper. In the meantime, preheat the oven at 150°C. Layer the meatballs on a baking shit and place them in the oven. Let them cook for about 15-20 minutes.

For the sauce:

  • 2 tbs English mustard
  • 1 tbs Dijon mustard
  • 300ml chicken broth
  • 500ml liquid cream
  • salt, pepper

In a sauce pan, mix the liquid cream together with the chicken broth. Bring to boil and add the mustards. Season with salt and pepper.

Once the meatballs are cooked, serve and cover them with the mustard sauce. Mash potatoes will complete your plate. Enjoy !!
