Delicious meatballs with béchamel sauce will be served at my dining table every week. I promise!
This recipe is one of those that really fascinate me.
Few days ago, I went to a friend of mine I haven’t seen for a long time, and I tried this meatballs and béchamel combination for the first time.
An extraordinary recipe!
Definitely, number one!
As you know, I’m always amazed by recipes in which you can combine many ingredients, or exclude and add ingredients on my own.
It is a recipe that you can easily experiment with, and adjust to your own taste.
Today I’m presenting the recipe in a way my friend does. The recipe goes this way:
Ingredients you need to prepare the meatballs:
500 gr ground meat
small bulb of grated or finely cut onion
1 tablespoon finely cut fresh parsley
2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon baking powder
some cooking oil
Preparation of meatballs:
First, put all ingredients into a bowl and stir well so that you get a consistent meat mixture.
Create small meatballs using your hands when it is all mixed, and deep-fry for a while into preheated cooking oil.
Ingredients you need to prepare the béchamel sauce:
6 tablespoons flour
3-4 tablespoons parmesan
4 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons mustard
Preparation of béchamel sauce:
First, melt butter at low temperature, then add the finely cut garlic, and stir-fry.
Add flour when garlic is stir-fried, and stir-fry it too with stirring continually.
When flour changes its color, or when it is stir-fried as well, put frying pan away from the cooker, and add milk slowly with simultaneous stirring, so that it does not create some clods.
Put the frying pan back on the cooker so that it steams for a while, and add the parmesan and mustard.
You can also add some salt and pepper if you like.
I would emphasize that the original recipe for meatballs with béchamel sauce requires some 600 ml milk, but if you prefer it thinner, feel free to add some more milk.
Pour béchamel sauce into a roasting tray, arrange meatballs onto it, and then pour the cooking oil into which meatballs were deep-fried.
Sprinkle entire roasting tray with some more parmesan, and put into a preheated oven to roast at 200 C degrees for about 15-20 minutes.
