Great Leftover Meatballs
Polpette di lesso
Most modern households produce mountains of litter – and a lot of it is uneaten or leftover food. The amounts of waste are a strain on the environment and the private economy, which is why I try to copy the old fashioned Italian virtues of husbandry.
With a little skill, spice and imagination, leftovers can be turned into nice new meals that are just as good and sometimes even better than the first time round. That goes for lesso rifatto and for these meatballs made from cooked meat or leftover roast. They are absolutely delicious, and will ensure that every bit of meat from the day before gets eaten.
