Chef John's Italian Meatballs
I started to make this recipe exactly as the recipe states but had tremendous issues after adding the eggs. It produced a rather loose mixture that I could not roll up. I did use eggs from my chickens so the sizing may have been off but the recipe does not mention egg size. I used 2 large eggs and I shall change that to 2 medium eggs next time. I ended up having to add a lot more breadcrumbs to make up for the wetness of the mixture. As others had mentioned I regret not cooking these on a tray that would drain the grease. Also something I will do next time. Overall great flavour. After my adjustment they held together and held their shape. I did cook the meatballs for a little longer than specified but more to time with the rest of the meal. I wish I had taken them out at the right time (tasted and they were perfect) as they ended up a little chewy leaving them in for a little longer. Thanks for sharing. I will be making again.

What a great recipe. As per another review I used Joslyns Creole seasoning for the Cajun seasoning. After reading up on file powder I substituted 1tsp of cornstarch added to enough COLD water to cover and mixed until dissolved. I added this for the thickening. I have made this several time and have enjoyed it enough there were no left overs. I did substitute beef broth for the chicken once and it tasted equally as good. I do struggle with my rice sticking to my pan even on the lowest heat setting, but regular stirring helps, although it has a tendency to mush the rice a little. Thanks for sharing!

Creole Seasoning Blend
I was directed to your recipe via another who recommended your seasoning. Glad I did. Easy to make and store in a Tupperware tub. Nice base flavouring for many dishes. I did omit the salt and cayenne pepper. Salt due to sodium issues and the pepper for the kids. Still tasted great. Thanks for sharing!
