I think there is going to be a meatball renaissance. Call it a hunch. In fact, we’re going to launch the campaign now. Let’s #MakeMeatballsGreatAgain.
A lot of people hear the word “meatball” and instantly feel like yawning. Not me. My first thought is “What kind of meatballs?” I have seen how hamburgers have become the latest craze for creativity. What is a meatball but a ground up burger, bun and all? Why shouldn’t it be as trendy as its cousin?
In a previous post, “A Reintroduction to Meatballs“, I gave a basic meatball recipe which can be easily adapted for personal preferences. Changing the types of meat, the seasonings and/or the sauce will produce a completely different flavor profile. Italian, Asian, Mediterranean, Hungarian … mild, spicy, sweet and sour …
This particular version comes from a good friend of mine who made these for potluck dinners at our church. My boys, who were pretty young at the time, just loved them (they still do). Never ever be afraid to ask someone for their recipe. It is a compliment. It’s really a compliment when you tell that person that it is still a family favorite 20 years later!
