Meatballs Aren’t Just for Pasta!

Easy Savory Meatballs are something that you don’t think about making yourself, but they are so easy, you’ll wonder why you never did.  I make up large batches of meatballs and then freeze them uncooked, making it easy to put them in pasta sauce, bake and slice on pizzas, or top them with some pizza sauce in a hoagie roll.  It’s amazing what you can do with a bag full of frozen meatballs!

Make The Meatballs What You Want

The basic ingredients for meatballs is easy: ground meat, eggs, breadcrumbs, and seasonings.  Seasonings can change, depending on what you want the meatballs to taste like, or what their purpose is.  I usually make mine Italian style, as in this recipe, but you can change them up to be anything you like.  Add some steak seasoning for a barbecue meatball, or chopped pineapple and a bit of brown sugar for teriyaki style.  Really, you can do anything with them once you know the basics.

Basic Recipe for Meatballs: Multiply It!

We’ll go over what it takes for a single pound of ground meat, but you can multiply it for as many pounds as you want to make!  If you want to make ten pounds of meatballs, multiply everything by 10 and mix away!  Use this as a very basic recipe to make whatever your needs are.  Just realize the higher the fat content of your meat, the more they will shrink and add fat to your dish.
