We have never been fans of barbecue sauce/ grape jelly/etc. on meatballs and much prefer the traditional marinara for dipping these. While the recipe specifies ground beef, I haven't used ground beef in a very long time. Instead, these are made with ground white chicken. Ground white turkey could also be used, depending on your budget. When making these this time, I used Pecorino cheese. With no seasoned bread crumbs, I simply added dried basil and dried oregano to the mix.
Of course, "leftovers" are always good this way:
If there are any leftovers from this, Munchkin the Elder loves Meatball Subs!:-)
Oh! While you have those toothpicks handy, try them with these:
Lovely cubed potatoes, just perfect for a side dish - or a party table! Munchkin the Younger finds that these are just what she needs!:-)
Both these recipes actually came from the Rookie Cookie page of our newspaper.
Well, I would have to agree with BOTH of the Munchkins! These look really yummy, and those meatballs would be delicious as is or on a meatball sub! Thanks for another great idea, Sister! Enjoy your day!ReplyDelete
Oh yum, I think I'm coming to your house for supper.... in my dream.ReplyDelete
Have a great day. It's snowing here and meatballs sounds great.
The cubed potatoes look really good. I love all kinds of potatoes.ReplyDelete
Nellie, both dishes look wonderful. The potato dish would be a big hit at my house! Enjoy your afternoon! xo ♥ReplyDelete
I'd need more than a toothpick, give me a fork!ReplyDelete
Oh, those potatoes do sound good, Nellie - I just some potato wedges in the oven, but not with cheese. I'll have to remember this.ReplyDelete
