The meat I prefer to use in this recipe is ground pork but it can be substituted with either lean ground beef or ground turkey. For vegetarian meatballs I use *Morning Star Breakfast Sausage patties.
*Prep for vegetarian meatballs is basically the same. However the measurements and cooking is a bit different. I will post if there is request for it.
I came across this recipe in the most serendipitous manner...on my way to work going 50mph I saw some trash blowing across the road...it got stuck to my car and I could hear it fluttering all the way to work. When I got out of my car I found a piece of newspaper stuck to my front grill. I took it off and what was it? A torn out page from a week old newspaper that has 4 yummy sounding recipes! Wow. I feel obligated to post them now.
Scrumptious meatballs from Mom. Mom never browned them first if she was using in her spaghetti sauce. See her recipe for sauce posted in my recipes, recipe #210729. She would drop them in raw and let them simmer for 40 mins. You will have to skim off any excess fat that rises to the top of the sauce if done this way. Or you can saute them first or bake in the oven before adding them to the sauce. No need to skim off any grease if pre-cooked.
This was my huband's grandfather's recipe. It is always a big hit when I make this or share the recipe. Very easy to make just slow cooks all day. Please don't the long list scare you this is very easy and well worth the wait. I am posting the original recipe.
This is a really yummy recipe I got out of Hello Magazine years ago. The dipping sauce is a must! Serve either as a starter or serve with noodles/stir fry as a main meal. It takes a bit of prep, but is worth it!
I found this recipe on Pinchin Your Pennies. My family thinks these meatballs have really good flavor. They don't really retain their shape while cooking but that doesn't affect their flavor. As a time saver I useually use pre-chopped frozen green pepper and onions. I useually use 8oz of tomato sauce unless I use Alidi's frozen ground beef then I use the 6oz. I find that it's best to cook my meatballs for 45-60 minutes.
My family has always loved getting spicy meatballs at parties and functions. I decided to try my own version of these treats and this is what I created. I am asked all the time to bring these to various functions or just because. I hope you enjoy.
I first had this at a church supper. It was delicious and asked for the recipe. I was amazed to see that there were not many ingredients in it. I now make this one and alternate it with my regular one Recipe #102545. The Sweet & Spicy Meatloaf has only a few ingredients and is delicious, and my regular one has more in it, but is delicious too. This has a nice sauce on top. I always thought that if there were more ingredients in a meatloaf, it would taste better, but not necessarily so. This is very,very tasty!
The yogurt is the secret ingredient in this meatloaf! You can use a mixture of ground beef, veal and pork if desired. To save time you can saute the mushroom/onion mixture a day in advance and refrigerate. Also chili sauce or ketchup can be spread on top of the meatloaf before baking. For Italian-style breadcrumbs see recipe#203857, if you are using this recipe for breadcrumbs reduce the Parmesan cheese to 1/4 cup and omit the thyme.
From My Great Recipes of many years ago.
The sauce makes this basic meatloaf deliciously different! I always double the recipe which gives me more than enough for an evening meal and lunches the following day.
This recipe is from Rachael Ray off her tv show. I assume using Speghgetti instead of bucatini will still turn out great. This recipe looks is irresistably good. I guessed on the servings and cooking time because I have not made the recipe yet.
From a Food Network "Calling All Cooks" segment several years ago as made by Inglill Mutti with my alterations. These are about as Swedish as they get and my once a year MUST make recipe each Christmas season. This joins my Top Ten favorite recipes! Two tips: Cardamom can be expensive & hard to find. I finally found it at
"Wild Oats" where bulk spices are sold by the ounce. I also use Tyler Florence's recipe for the accompanying Lingonberry Sauce, another hard to find item. I found 2 brands at Cost Plus World Market, and I also hear it's sold at Ikea if there's one near you.
