Fluffy Meatball Recipe (Video)

Meatball – It’s the king of canteens and everyday kitchens, an indispensable attendant of vegetable stews in the Hungarian cuisine.

How to prepare this recipe

Fasírt (meatball) means both meat loaf and patties in Hungarian, it can be breaded or not, fried in oil or roasted in the oven – everyone treasures a unique recipe.

Everyone loves those fluffy meatballs, with a reddish, crispy crust and a soft, well-seasoned interior. It’s natural, after all, why would you want some hard, tasteless cannonballs? 
What keeps the meatballs fluffy is the bread added to the composition, in a proportion of common sense, just enough to make the meatball composition looser, I think is not enough to eat the meatballs with only vague traces of meat.

Everyone in my family likes meatballs just as much that no one can ever refuse them. It seems to be for us one of those dishes which are “like my mum makes”, which make us feel comfortable and somehow soothe us.  Therefore, I prepare meatballs quite often, in various variants. I also gladly prepare meatballs when we have a large meal with the extended family.
