Attriau is a caul-wrapped meatball common in some parts of regional France.
The French gastronomy dictionary has this definition:
'Crépinette en forme de boulette aplatie généralement composée de viande de veau, d’hachis de foie de porc, de fines herbes et d’oignon.'
A crepinette is almost always a slightly flattened and wrapped in caul. The description above also suggests that veal should be used along with minced pig liver, herbs and onion.
