I’ve made your meatballs before and they are amazing, but I am still a beginner and I’m always feeling a little confused about the breadcrumbs! Do you recommend any specific brand of “seasoned dried breadcrumbs” And for the fresh breadcrumbs, do I just chop up some bread and call them breadcrumbs?

For the seasoned dried breadcrumbs, I like brand '"4c" which is available in most grocery stores. For fresh breadcrumbs, I start with a loaf of crusty white or sourdough bread, remove the crust, and chop the bread in a food processor until it's the size of large breadcrumbs. I hope that helps!!
