Maybe it’s me? When I click on the image it only wants to let me pin it. I would love to see all the recipes. Meatballs are always a major hit with my family. I will check back and see if I can get to Foodie.

Thank you! Works like a gem! I have got to try making the

Skewered Spaghetti and Meatballs. Those look so cool. Plus I know my kids would eat them!

I like the beer BBQ and the bourbon meatballs. I LOVE the little picks in the beer bbq meatballs and have never seen anything like them. We host cards and football nights alot since we dont have young kids around and I have served meatballs quite bit. I like them plain myself and kinda cheat and use the premaid (shhhhh) then add a sauce or give the guys a choice of sauces.

Those picks are cute – I haven’t shopped at this place, but they have tons of different food picks Nothing wrong with using prepared sauces at all – some of the recipes in my collection do that as well. I tried to get a little bit of everything in the collection

I would personally like to try the Cannellini Bean Vegetarian “Meatballs” with Tomato Sauce, but I suspect that if I had guest they would really devour the Skewered Spaghetti and Meatballs.

I knew I HAD to include vegetarian “meat” balls in the collection :-)

My favorite meatball recipe is one based on the one my step-mom used to make when I was a kid that I loved. I vegetarianized and healthied it up though. LOL! I take my 3 QT Crockpot and put four bags of Quorn Meatless Meatballs into it. I then dump two bottles of Annie’s Homegrown Organic Smokey Maple BBQ sauce on top of the frozen meatballs. I “clean” out the two BBQ bottles using organic grape juice. I fill one of the dirty BBQ bottles with grape juice (to get out the last of the BBQ sauce), shaking the bottle until it is “clean” and all the residual BBQ sauce is combined with the grape juice. Then just repeat that in the 2nd bottle with the juice from the 1st bottle (hope that makes sense LOL). I then dump that BBQ sauce/grape juice mixture into the crockpot already loaded with the meatballs and BBQ sauce and give it a stir. I cook it until the meatballs are thawed and
have cooked in the BBQ/grape juice mixture for a few hours. We serve it with chunks of fresh baked french bread. We also usually have lots of fresh fruit and veggies to have along with it and to dip into the smoked gouda fondue we make with this. It is our Winter Solstice meal tradition. mmm! I want it now! LOL

It is SOOO good! mmm!

We make BBQ meatballs in the crock pot pretty often. We combine grape jelly and BBQ sauce (our favorite is Sweet Baby Ray’s brand) and add in frozen meatballs and cook on high for several hours.

I have never been much for meatballs myself, but the rest of the family really love them, so I have started doctoring frozen ones to taste. The process shared by angelabailey sounds as if it might be a winner for them!

I love meatballs.. I could eat them every day. I even make mini meatballs for my lasagna!
I’d have to try those bourbon meatballs first. My kids like breadballs I make from leftover breadcrumbs, cheese, eggs and spices too.

Cashew chicken sounds like a great try, meatballs are awesome, have used the crock pot for them. sounds good for winter too!
