Basic Meatballs

Looking for an easy meatball recipe? This basic meatballs recipe might be just what you need. This recipe is perfect if you want to make in advance and store in the freezer for later.

Notes


  • This recipe will give you evenly sized meatballs.

     

  • Double the recipe if you plan to freeze them.

     

  • I always add half a dozen or so minced garlic cloves and you can add any herb to suit your own taste.

     

  • They are great to have on hand in the freezer as a base for a fast meal.

     

  • Heat them in your favourite tomato based sauce and serve with spaghetti or with pineapple chunks and sauteed green pepper chunks in a sweet and sour sauce with rice.

     

  • They are also good beneath toothpicks with a hoisin based sauce for dipping.

This is a good basic recipe for meatballs. I like serving meatballs with spaghetti sauce over pasta. For this recipe, I would use lean ground beef or ground turkey, skim milk, and Italian parsley. I would also add minced garlic and Italian seasoning to the meatballs since I plan to serve them in spaghetti sauce.
