What I love about Recipezaar is that I can take the remarks and suggestions from members and make a good recipe 'better'. Since I am not an intuitive cook I need to be reminded what goes together. So, thank you to each reviewer. My changes: 2 tbsp parmesan cheese (I didn't want it too cheesy) Italian breadcrumbs 3 cloves garlic 1 tsp each of basil, parsley and oregano (all dried) 1/4 tsp salt (but I will use 1/2 tsp next time; I always cut the salt when possible, but this wasn't overly salty) 1/4 tsp pepper (I will probably increase to 1/2 tsp) Chopped onion (I love onions, so I just chopped some up and added it to the mixture until it looked good!) Baked for 20 min in 350 degree onion. Again, thanks to MEP and everyone's reviews.
If you're looking for a simple, basic meatball recipe this one is pretty good...I couldnt find my usual meatball recipe card so naturally I came to Recipezaar & found this one...Using it as a jumping off point, I replaced the chicken w/ ground bison, used organic egg, kept to the parmesan, replaced the breadcrumbs w/ rolled oats, used jarred garlic (1tb), replaced fresh oregano (had none) w/ 1/2 tsp. Mrs. Dash skipped the salt entirely & elected to bake the meatballs rather than frying (@ 375 for 15 min) made @ 15 meatballs or 5 servings...served w/ lofat/losodium spag sauce (Walnut Acres brand) over Veggie Mac (vegetable based pasta)...thanks for sharing the recipe!
Where's the six-star option for this one? These meatballs are beyond excellent! Instead of basil, we used a bit of fresh rosemary and parsley as well as a little extra garlic. They were terrific! If I weren't completely full, I'd be going back for seconds now. :) Well done!
MEP, these were fantastic! I made them for supper tonight to go with our spaghetti! The only change I made was to add an extra clove of garlic, since both DH and I are garlic lovers! These meatballs will be a regular in our house from now on! Thanks for sharing this great recipe MEP!
Mmmmmmm, just had these for dinner & they were delicious! I used turkey mince instead of chicken mince (only because I had never had turkey mince before)& they turned out perfect, served with my pasta sauce (#66750). Will definetely have these again!
Best. Meatballs. EVER! The taste and texture were a huge hit. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.
I took another reviewer suggestion & baked these in the oven, so I was able omit the olive oil making for a lighter meal. Suggested servings is four, but I have enough meatballs for six at least. The ground chicken has a bit different texture than beef, but I think this is something that you get over very quickly. I will be making these again.
I love this website...I need to follow recipe's as I don't have the guts to throw things together...however I will admit this recipe needs a little more taste to it...I used ground turkey..I will use more herbs next time as y'all suggested...otherwise quick & easy to prep..I baked in oven and drizzled the olive oil..also added more garlic..but still not enough flavor flavor...thanks though.
These were the best meatballs ever! I used ground turkey and stovetop chicken flavor for the breadcrumbs. I also used seasoned garlic salt for the salt and italian dried herbs for the oregano. They were fantastic!
A wonderful recipe! I've only eaten ground beef spaghetti sauce but I'm fazing out of beef for healthier alternatives. I cut the recipe in half, used lean ground turkey & only used 2 tbsp parm cheese (more wasn't needed). I also used 1 tsp italian seasoning instead of oregano & used 1 tsp dried minced onion. I baked the meatballs at 350 for 20 min, then rinsed them off in cold water to remove any fat (there really wasn't much). Then I added them to my homemade spaghetti sauce & simmered for 20 min. I got about 12 decent sized meatballs out of this. FYI-for anyone like me just starting to get into subbing ground poultry for beef, the taste is different but is still delicious. Just takes a little time to get used to it. Thank you so much for sharing!!
