Wild boar meatballs, spaghetti with tomato sauce

Wild boar meatballs, spaghetti with tomato sauce

A few days ago, I offered you a recipe for pigeon pastilla and candied eggplant. Today, my recipe also includes game. But this time, I cooked wild boar.
It was a first for me. I discovered a meat that was soft and ultimately very easy to cook. I had a lot of fun preparing a recipe that should appeal to both young and old. Who can resist a dish of spaghetti in tomato sauce served with meatballs? And it was really delicious.

To tell you the truth, this recipe was made as part of a collaboration with InterProchasse. As I had received a little more meat than I needed, I cooked 2 other recipes with wild boar, just for us and for fun. So I prepared a terrine which was perfect for a picnic and also a stew with Tuscan flavors. We loved it !
I will try to post these recipes. But in the meantime, if you also want to cook wild boar, or any other game for that matter, you can find other recipes on the site I cook game. And, you can order meat from your butcher.

And now, place for wild boar dumplings!

Dip the bread crumbs in the milk, then add it to the meat. Also add the egg, the onion, the chopped garlic cloves and parsley and the grated parmesan. Season and mix.

Form about 20 meatballs, then roll them quickly in the flour.
