IOWA – A new and convenient meatball product introduced last month will have restaurateurs whipping up Italian entrees in seconds flat. Burke Corporation, an industry leader in fully-cooked meat products, is launching a flat version of its authentic tasting, traditional Italian-style meatballs under its Premoro brand.

The latest Premoro product is a flavourful blend of quality beef, pork, authentic Italian seasonings and cheeses, formed into consistent .6-ounce flat meatballs. Easier to handle and quicker to re-heat, flat meatballs make for more efficient assembly of menu items and added convenience for the cook line. Not to mention the added value to the bottom line; this new product is fully cooked to reduce labour and training costs and individually quick-frozen to maintain freshness and shelf life.

“There is no need to worry about losing these meatballs, as they won’t be rolling anywhere. In fact, the flat shape makes for easier handling and quicker, more thorough heating – factors that are especially important in delivering a high-quality, hot sandwich or pizza every time,” said Liz Hertz, Burke marketing manager. “Both industrial and food service operators will appreciate the labour savings that fully-cooked, flat meatballs offer as well as the authentic taste, consistent size and meaty appearance that are so important to consumers.”

Premoro flat meatballs’ versatility makes them ideal for premium Italian menu applications including pizza and pasta, sub and grinder sandwiches, casseroles, and appetizers. In addition to its newest product, Burke’s meatball line offers a variety of sizes and blends including Premoro wedding soup meatballs and beef meatballs under its MagniFoods brand.
