Saliva Meatballs


Our meatball variety, also pronounced as "spit meatballs", is a street flavor that creates long queues with its scent rising from the grill before football fans in front of the stadium or after the concert. Small-sized saliva meatballs, which are easily shaped by moistening slightly with water, started to be known by this name as an urban legend.

You can easily cook the saliva meatball recipe, which should be prepared with medium-fat minced meat, consisting of a mixture of bread crumbs soaked in water, beef brisket, and lamb.

How to Make Saliva Meatballs Recipe?

For stale bread that you have taken the crust parts, soak them in water and leave them aside to soften.

Cut the onion into very small pieces. Put the medium-fat minced meat mixed with veal and lamb into a deep mixing bowl.

Mix the minced meat with the onion cut into small pieces, sunflower oil, salt, pepper and cumin.

After completely squeezing the juice of the stale bread you soak in water, add it to the meatball mixture. Knead the meatball mixture with all the ingredients for 15-20 minutes.

After resting the meatball mixture in the fridge for at least 40 minutes, divide it into walnut-sized pieces.

After dipping your hand in the water, give the meatballs a flat shape. Cook on a pre-greased and heated grill or preferably on a cast iron pan, turning it back and forth over high heat.

You can serve it on bread with chopped onion, parsley, hot pepper, and tomato slices as well as share it with your loved ones as a portion.
