When we get back after a long trip and need an easy meal that I know everyone will love, Everyday Meatballs is the first thing I think of.
We have this running joke at my house, that I am the queen of meat-blobs. Yes you read that right, meat-BLOBS. I am normally unable to make round balls. And go for the more abstract look.
To be completely honest I hate rolling out meatballs! It’s tedious and annoying. Therefore to speed things up, my meatballs end up looking more like deformed meat blobs.
Lucky for me, the hubs and Poppy don’t care what their meatballs look like.
But seriously, everyday meatballs at the best! Who doesn’t’ love a good juicy meatball. With sauce, without sauce. On pasta, on a sub, or with a toothpick. A childhood favorite that is versatile, make-ahead and easy peasy.
This is my favorite classic way of making meatballs. Even easier than lots of other recipes since the oven does all the cooking and you don’t have to pan fry them. I make them without sauce and then use them for 100 and 1 dishes.
Make meatball subs, spaghetti and meatballs, meatball apps, barbeque meatball sandwiches. You name it and these everyday meatballs work.
They can easy be made with beef or turkey and are great for adults and kiddos alike. They save for a week in the fridge and a 3 months in the freezer.
And really don’t be concerned about the shape of these little guys, whether they are perfectly round or blob-like, they are equally delicious.
