Meatballs like you've never seen them before—these recipes take the humble meatball to a whole new tasting experience and includes recipes for fish and vegetables as well.
A meatball is one of the simplest recipes you can make, they can be made out of almost anything, and everyone loves them! They make the perfect dish for a Monday night family dinner, finger food for a Sunday football feast, or bulk cooking for meal prep throughout the week. Here are 60 innovative and downright delicious recipes like you've never seen before, including vegetarian (meat)balls:
Meatballs Rustico, devoured with crusty bread to sop up the delectable sauce
Seared Beef Carpaccio Meatballs, best eaten with a glass of Prosecco in hand
Pork, Peanut & Water Chestnut, best served simply in a lettuce cup
Red Devil Meatballs, supercharged with red chili
Honey-Glazed Chicken--what's not to love?
Prawn Balls, which are ideal served on a stick
Corn & Quinoa, wonderfully versatile balls
Chickpea & Cauliflower, these are creamy and decadent
Tofu & Mushroom, incredibly earthy and flavorsome
Almost as important as the main dish is what they are served with. Select from 20 ideas for sotte palle (literally "underneath the balls"), from Creamy Polenta or Roasted Fennel to Wasabi Slaw, Cheesy Bread, or Toasted Quinoa. Top with one of the 20 simple, mouthwatering sauces such as Aioli, Red Wine and Onion, or Creamy Mushroom. Finally, sprinkle with some truffle salt or crushed pistachios—and tuck in.
