Balducci's Brodetto

  • h

In Balducci's mail-order and website catalog is a prepared dish called brodetto. Described as their version of an Italian dish, it includes lamb in what looks like a tomatoe-y sauce, topped with a mixture of eggs, peas, parmigiano and herbs. I would love to prepare this at home. I have looked through many of my cookbooks and can't find anything remotely similar. Would anyone have, perhaps a family or other recipe? Some background on this dish?

  1. Brodetto is an Italian bouillabaise served on toast, made in the Marche. Why Balducci's uses lamb and peas (yuck) is anyone's guess. The dish should be a variety of small fish, seafood and crustaceans, cooked in white wine, then either with a light tomato sauce or simply saffron.
