Are you a fan of meatballs?  I feel like you are either a meatball person or you're not.  My husband?  He could take them or leave them.  Not me, though. I am most definitely a fan of the meatball.  This is my 5th meatball recipe on the blog, so that kind of proves it right there.

See, that's the thing.  I love meatballs because they're so versatile, hence the five different meatball recipes.  You can eat meatballs as an appetizer, as a side, on a sandwich, with a sweet sauce, with a savory sauce, with an Italian twist....the list goes on and on!

This particular meatball recipe is your basic quick and easy recipe.  They don't have a ton of heavy seasoning, so they could easily be used in any recipe that calls for meatballs.  You could always add a sprinkle of garlic powder and Italian Seasoning to the mix if you're serving them with spaghetti, but they are delicious and compliment any sauce or dip as is!

These meatballs are also great for making a big batch and freezing for using in recipes later.  It's a time saver in the long run and so much better than the packaged frozen kind from the store.

So, how about you?  Meatball fan or no?  I'm guessing because you are here reading this, you probably are!

Here are a few more meatball recipes from the archives for all of the meatball fans out there:


P.S. These may not be super "mini" to you if you normally eat smaller meatballs.  My mom is a fan of little meatballs like this, in general. I like big honkin' 2, 2 1/2 inch meatballs, so to me, these are mini. 😉
