Italian meatballs with an "Irish Pudding Twist"

karyn ryan


We love meatballs in this house... all kinds swedish, italian but especially italian/irish ones.. delicious meatballs with the addition of an irish ingredient "irish white pudding". Its made from pork and seasonings and comes in white or black. I break it up and added to the ground beef. I don't know if you can get it in the states? maybe in an irish shop. I put up a photo to show you the pudding. Anybody with Irish in their family will know exactly what it is !!!!!
