Easy & Delicious Meatballs

Brenda Vander Zanden

By

These meatballs freeze well so don't be afraid to double or triple the recipe. This is a basic meatball, so don't be afraid to mix spices into the raw meat mix to create Italian, BBQ, whatever your menu calls for.

By mixing everything in the food processor, you save at least 10-15 minutes prep time and the meatballs have a better texture.

The 80/20 or 85/15 mix keep the meatball juicy. Leaner mixes tend to dry them out after baking.
