In Search of a Great Meatball

I am looking for a great meatball recipe. I have tried many, and while I have not found a bad meatball, I certainly haven't found one that knocks my socks off.

I like meatballs -- and not the ginormous ones. I like mine bite-sized. And when I want a meaty spaghetti sauce, I want meatballs that MAKE the spaghetti sauce wondrous.

My mom makes great meatballs but I can't recreate them. And I like to experiment and try others and one day, I'll have my own.

The closest to 'out-of-this-world' meatballs I have gotten are the meatballs that are part of the Dinners At Home franchise in Raleigh. This is similar to Super Suppers, where you make your own meals with their ingredients. They have a meatball lasagna that is amazing.

But again, this isn't my recipe. I want one to make in my own be used in spaghetti, or to be used as an appetizer.

Anyone got one they want to share with me? All I ask is that it doesn't fall outside of the common meats: only beef, pork, turkey, chicken...not interested in veal, lamb, venison, squirrel, and its likes.

Oh, and if you know of a place to dine at that has great meatballs, I'd be interested in that too.

Bon Appetit!

  1. Hey Cindy!
    The recipe I tried is actually from and is called Polynesian-Glazed Meatballs. I don't have luck making a good meatball so I enlist the help of the frozen. Everyone seemed to like it anyway. It is a cross between a BBQ and sweet and sour mix. If you can't find the recipe on the site and if you want to try it I will be more than happy to send it to you. Good luck!
