    Hi
    My son has got it into his head that he wants to cook meatballs at the weekend when we're together. Does anyone know of any good and easy recipes that will let him get his hands mucky but aren't too complicated cheers! B

    This is a recipe site for kids helping in the kitchen....
    the recipe is for meatloaf muffins, but would work for balls!

    Hi there wave.gif

    Welcome to the Kid Friendly Forum! This recipe looks perfect for you Easy Basic Meatballs - the poster has mentioned in the intro that her 3rd & 4th grade daughters make these....

    I also think that this similar recipe looks great Easy Oven Meatballs & you just pop them in the oven.

    You didn't mention whether your son wanted to cook the meatballs in a sauce but once these are done in the oven he could just pop them in a pan of sauce & heat through icon_biggrin.gif

    Hope that helps!

    Rezika.

    you could try - Greek Keftedes

    Note: these are meatballs which tend to be eaten as they are but sometimes have a sauce added.

    The first meatball recipe I taught my son was so simple. Prepare one box of stuffing mix as directed on package, but do not cook. When water is absorbed, add one pound ground beef [or chicken, or whatever]. If time allows, refrigerate overnight. Shape into balls, bake at 350 about 15 minutes depending on size [or pan-fry if you prefer]. These are awesome served with gravy and mashed potatoes. They can also be frozen for later use.

    Heya
    We had a go at using half ground beef/half ground pork, using 1 egg to bind
    Seasoned well, and used some rosemary and cumin
    My son shaped the meatballs (even tried a bit of mozzarella in the middle) - very messy, but lots of fun icon_smile.gif
    I did the sauce - a basic tomato and basil one - and we both did the eating
    Lovely
    Thanks icon_biggrin.gif

    These are super easy. Zillion Meatballs Use prechopped garlic, onions & green peppers for easier prep. Hope this helps! Christine (internetnut)

    My kiddos love Hubby-Will-Inhale-Them Meatballs. Reviewers have made them in the oven as well as the skillet. The oven prep prevents splatters, which hurt. I'm a grownup and I like to avoid those.

    These look like the ones we like to make.

    I was going to go look this recipe up because I was going to suggest it. They are the only meatballs we make. They are fabulous. I usually double or quadruple the recipe and bake them in the oven. We then freeze them to have ready quickly.MMMmmm....makes me want to go get some out of the freezer now.
