  • talking about meatballs........

    Does anyone have a good recipe for mini meatballs? I have a recipe but there's hardly any spice in them and they just taste like ground beef. I'd like something more flavorful. What do you add to your meatballs?

      salt, pepper, garlic, minced onions

      thats all and a little bread crumbs to hold it all together.

        If I'm using plain hamburger, I season it with a good steak seasoning that we like, such as Weber's or McCormick's, and nothing else. I use pepper and garlic powder if I use a half burger/half sausage mix.

          I also need a good meatball recipe. I had one and lost it. I found the sauce recipe but not the meatballs. I love to make and double the recipe and freeze half of it. I am going right now to check out Doreen's !!

            I usually make my Italian meatballs like this:

            1lb ground chuck
            1 tbs parmesan cheese
            1 beaten egg
            1 tbs minced onion
            1 tsp garlic powder
            1 tsp parsley
            1/4 - 1/3 cup tomato sauce
            1/2 cup or so of bread crumbs
            salt and pepper

            I don't really measure, so amounts are approximate. I spray a 9X13 pan with Pam, then swirl some tomato sauce on the bottom of the pan, and cook for about 40 minutes or so on 350.

              1 lb. hamburger
              lb. ground pork
              3 eggs
              tsp. pepper
              2 cups parmesan cheese, shredded (original recipe called for GRATED parmesan, but I found it WAY too salty for my taste. Now I use fresh shredded)
              cup chopped parsley

              Mix all ingredients. Scoop into balls. Bake unitl done. I don't know an exact time, sorry. I usually bake them for a little while and then finish them in the sauce anyway.

                the recipe i listed is for small meatballs, such as used in wedding soup. My regular meatballs get more involved.

                    Every time I see one of these meatball posts - it makes me start craving them!
                    Sure wish I had a crock pot full of them waiting on me!

                    Oh! Great idea for Halloween night!
                    Having a housefull of boys spend the night with DS and my DD's are coming over also - so that will be a fun appetizer!

                    I could call them Eyeballs in Blood Sauce or something! HA!

                    Going to have several things! This will be a fun one for sure!
