I have numerous guilty pleasures in this world. Every girl must have a few, right? Most of them are food related but one of them is…I’m almost too embarrassed to admit…Bravo TV. I religiously watch The Real Housewives of Every City. It’s like watching a very well dressed train wreck. Impossible to stop once you start. Consider yourself warned! The Real Housewives of New Jersey may be out of control crazy but boy can they cook! Almost every episode someone is making some good old-fashioned Italian food, so I decided to try my hand at heritage Italian Meatballs in honor of the RHONJ.
I found this heritage Italian Meatball recipe in One Big Table, which is a compilation of old-fashioned American recipes by Molly O’Neill. It is the Camparetti family’s recipe from New York City, and just like the RHONJ, it is crazy good!
