Tuna Meatballs

Roberta’s tuna meatballs are a perfect option for a classy aperitif. Don’t worry: they’re extremely easy to prepare! I promise!  You won’t need any béchamel sauce, nor will you end up with 20 dirty pots and pans after you’ve finished cooking. You won’t even have to wait for the dough to cool down. By the time you’ve thought about what you’re about to make, they’re practically ready!  Then all you have to do is create an even fry to prevent the croquettes from breaking, and it’s time to tuck in.  You can see the end result in the photo above: delicious little golden, crispy balls which are best enjoyed warm and in good company.  What do you think?
