    Store-bought meatballs???

    I want to buy some ready-made meatballs to make up in the jelly/chile sauce combo, BUT I don't want them to be as hard as cardboard (as some are).....haven't bought any in Canada for many years (Toronto area), so am not familiar with the different ones that are available. Does anyone have a good place to buy them? Longo's? Bruno's? M & M? President's Choice? I should be making them, but would rather buy them and make everything else from scratch.
    Thanks for any ideas.......

    Hi Mabers, I had some at a friends house that she said she got from M&M's. She did them in the crockpot with Sweet and Sour and they were really very good.
    So I went and bought some from IGA, thinking I would do the same and they were yucko. Too soft and squishy in the center with a weird texture to them.
    Wayne said they left a bad after taste too, but he had way more than me icon_wink.gif

    I would try M&M's.

    Hope that helps! icon_biggrin.gif

    Yep...there really is a difference between the good ones and the rest.
    Thanks Leslie...will keep M & M in mind and hope for some more responses.

    Hi Mabers
    I've used Food Basics Italian-style frozen meatballs with good results. They're reasonably
    priced too.

    Thanks guys.....still deciding here....was in Ikea yesterday and saw their Swedish meatballs. I spoke to a lady and she said they were good.....don't need them for a couple of weeks yet, so more ideas are welcome.

    Just realised - I omitted to mention it's their house brand ["Equality"] that I was referring to.

    I've made that recipe in the past using President's Choice meatballs.....either the Italian or the Swedish......both turned out great........

    Also heard that M & M's are very either choice would work.

    I've also had a bad experience with no name brands....say, Food Basics or IGA.........go for the good's worth it !

    Good luck !

    M&Ms are the best. I'm meatball challenged and whenever I need to have meatballs..... it's straight to M&Ms!

    Have been meaning to write and tell which ones I ended up with.
    After way too much thought, I bought President's Choice.....would do it again, but must try M and M's sometime soon.
    Thanks to all for your input.

    Just had our special meatball recipe last night and used PC chicken Italaian meatballs - good.
    have also used Schneider's meatballs and enjoyed them - get them from Giant Tiger (poor you if you do not have this store in your community).
    Our secret recipe - 1 jar raspberry jam (seeded or seedless), sppon or 2 each horseradish and mustard. Mix, heat and pour over meatballs.

    Hello! After much searching I've finally found meatballs that my whole family enjoys. I make MamaMancini's meatballs at least once a week. The best part is that these meatballs are all natural and it's easy to add to other recipes.

    MamaMancini's always posts coupons on their web site so I never worry about the cost. Plus its perfect for a quick meal! They have a store locator on their website so it's easy to find them.

    Best! Michelle-NJ icon_biggrin.gif
