Don’t skip the breadcrumbs
Bread Crumbs is one of the prime ingredients used in making meatballs. Breadcrumbs act as a binding agent that helps in keeping the meatball together.

Choose the right filling
Whenever you make meatballs at home, always pick out the right meat and stuffing to make them extra delicious. Some common ingredients used in the filling are pork, beef, chicken, bacon, mashed potatoes and eggs. Whatever you plan to use, add them in the right amount with proper measurement. Make sure that you don’t overcook and overstuff any of these ingredients.
