What are some good suggestions for making meatballs?

I am making meatballs today, but don’t have anything in mind yet. Any recipes, food combos, drinks that might work together well?

Answers:

  1. I hate to cook, so I never actually make my own meatballs. I use Mama Lucia’s Italian Meatballs, from the freezer section (they’re really good). But I do have a super simple (but gross sounding) recipe for delicious party meatballs. Just throw the meatballs (they can even still be frozen) into a crock pot with one jar of grape jelly and one bottle of Heinz Chili Sauce. As the jelly melts down, stir to combine. Cook until good and hot.
  2. I love to make meatballs with ground turkey. I put in minced garlic, finely chopped onion, chiffonade of basil, and parmesan cheese along with salt and pepper.
    Then I use them in soup. I make an Italian minestrone style soup with chicken stock, spinach or other greens, pasta, canned tomatoes, diced onion, diced zucchini, and sometimes cannelini beans.
    Or I serve the meatballs with zucchini ribbons (as pasta) and sauce.
