Milk instead of water on panko for Meatballs?

Hello.. do you think there would be any benefit to use milk on the panko bread crumbs in the neapolitan meatball recipe?



  • Hi Amanda -

    I knew that milk would add too much fat and make these already soft and delicate meatballs so soft that they would fall apart. Since they are already very moist and tender, I didn't need to use milk anyway. 

    Hope that helps.
