 Burrata Instructions:

Thinly sliced pancetta

Pre-heat oven to 450F. In a large pan over low heat melt butter along with the minced garlic, sea salt and black pepper until fragrant, 2-3 minutes. 

Weigh out the Neapolitan Bread, hand tear into small pieces and let it soak in the Whole Milk.

Add milk and bread to Robot Coupe and blend
until mixture turns to thick paste.

Add de-stemmed parsley, parmesan, eggs, and
melted garlic mixture to food processor. Blend

Transfer blended ingredients and ground beef to
large mixing bowl and thoroughly mix by hand.

Using a blue scoop and scale, portion 2.5 oz meat mixture. Gently pack mixture around burrata and wrap with pancetta. Place them in a full baking sheet pan
in a single layer in 6x9 rows. Leave about 1⁄2 inch of
space between Meatballs. Should take 5 minutes to
fill one large sheet pan with meatball.

Cover the full baking sheet pan with aluminum foil
and bake at 450 oF for minutes.

When finished, carefully remove meatballs from
the oven.
