The Perfect Meatball
23/04/2017 meatball recipe
These healthy baked meatballs and their delicious sauce hide a variety of vegetables – but the kids will never guess! I compared this recipe against the meatball recipe I’ve been using for 20 years, and it is exactly the same, except that I use 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs instead of 2/3 cup, and instead of cooking them on the stove in sauce I bake them at 400 for 16-20 minutes.

Silk’s plant-based beverages and yogurt alternatives are extremely versatile in the kitchen and can be used to create delicious meat- and dairy-free versions of your go-to tailgating recipes like my Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Bites.

This is a Swedish meatball recipe adapted from one given to my mother from her mother, who was a Massachusetts Swede.

I made meatballs recently using a recipe that cooked them in the oven on their own for 10 minutes (spread out on the bottom of a lasagne dish), then pouring the sauce over and cooking for a further 20 minutes. I have the need to lick the screen and pretend to hear the CRUNCH of that garlic bread with a meatball and melted cheese on top!
I loved how easy it was, as the frying (as Deb mentions) is usually such a messy production You miss the crispy crust and flavor with this recipe but it’s worth it. The texture of the meatballs was great. Start your own meatball medley, or expand your traditional repertoire with these great recipes for the meat lovers and vegetarians in your life.
