Homemade Meatball Showdown Recipe 2
Welcome back to the second Meatball recipe in my Meatball Showdown/Throwdown!
I’m sorry, but I’ve just gotta say it, Homemade Meatball Showdown Recipe 2 is my favorite of the homemade Italian meatball recipes currently found on my site. #2 is not only a moist, tender and succulent meatball but it’s full of so much flavor you might just fall in meatball love! Is that even a thing? Yes, yes it is my friend!
I’ve made a lot (thousands) of meatballs in my day and over the years I’ve found that the flavor gets better when they’re browned on the stove top or in the oven and then submerged in a big pot of savory tomato gravy that cooks slowly for a long period of time. They’re even better the next day and if you freeze some for later, they’ll be even better if that’s possible. All that sitting together just marries all the flavors so perfectly and it’s just so delicious! Can you tell that I really, really, really love meatballs and pasta?
More about meatballs…
Like people, meatballs come in all shapes and sizes and since we all have different tastes and preferences where food is concerned, this is a great thing! Maybe you really haven’t given that much thought to meatballs and you might even think I have a “problem” since I can’t stop talking about meatballs. But aren’t you happy to know there’s a meatball recipe out there just for you? Really, think about it, this is a big world that’s full of all kinds of meatballs and (yeah, other things too, but focus, it’s all about meatballs here) don’t you just want to try them all out? Dip them in all kinds of sauce and put them on all kinds of bread?
You can use these meatballs as appetizers, on meatball subs, meatball sliders or whatever your heart desires but please do me a favor and enjoy them, savor them and share them with your family and friends! Whether you like #1 or #2 better doesn’t really matter, I’m just crazy happy to be able to give you options for your recipes all in one place. Variety is the spice of life!!
