The fact that this word is not preceded by 'spaghetti and' may be a surprise to some people, but meatballs are versatile elements of an incredible range of dishes.
Whether cocktail size and served as an appetizer, or made form any number of delicious ingredients, meatballs are adaptable to a range of kitchen situations. Sometimes meatballs are best when celebrated, as in a plate of Meatballs with Tomato Ragu and Creamy Tomato. The baked pork meatballs in this dish hold their shape well. You can also slip your meatballs into a sandwich: Meatball Sliders with Tomato Sauce are a delicious spin on a party-food staple.
If you prefer a finger-food approach, you simply can't beat a dish full of Cocktail Meatballs—ground beef mixed with brown sugar, lemon juice, and horseradish. Or, choose lean meat and make Turkey Meatball Stroganoff. Whether meatballs are the stars of your soups, or the savory sensations covered in sauce or packed into sliders, you simply can't beat the ease and simplicity of the meatball. Roll up a batch of these great taste creations and have a ball in the kitchen today.
