Ingredients

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):
Kicked Up Tzatziki Sauce:

Directions

In a small bowl soak the bread cubes in the water and wine, then squeeze dry. In a large bowl combine the bread cubes and the remaining ingredients except the Essence, breadcrumbs and olive oil, mixing with your hands until smooth. Cover and chill for half an hour.

Season the bread crumbs with Essence in a shallow bowl. Shape the veal mixture into 1-inch balls and coat evenly with the bread crumbs. In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, saute the meatballs in batches in the oil, turning to brown evenly on all sides. Repeat until all meatballs are cooked. Serve hot with Kicked-Up Tzatziki Sauce.

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):

Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.
