Best Meatball Recipe

Growing up, I wouldn’t have considered myself a picky eater, but looking back on my likes and dislikes, I think maybe I might have been a little picky! I’m happy to report that I’m no longer picky, unless you ask The Hubs, he would probably say that I am. And that just might be because when he asks what I want for dinner, I usually say “anything but Chinese”!

One of the foods that I hated as a child was meatballs. To me, they always just tasted like…meat! I was never a fan of “meat”! Heaven forbid my mother ever made the meatballs with venison instead of ground beef! I happy to report that after thirty-six years, I have discovered the most delicious meatball recipe ever!

These little balls of deliciousness are the perfect addition to spaghetti night AND they make the perfect sub for kicking back and watching the game! (Whatever game that might be!)

This recipe can also be adapted for the crockpot too! Just brown the meatballs and finish in the crockpot with your favorite sauce!

Until Next Time: Peace, Love & Adventure
