There is no pre-packaged meatball I have ever encountered that even compares to a good homemade recipe like these. They all seem to pale in comparison with their rubbery texture and mediocre flavor. I love a quick fix store-bought option as much as the next person, but meatballs just aren’t the place for it. Do yourself a favor and spend that extra 15 minutes and make a these meatballs from scratch. Your family will thank you!
I made these a couple of weeks ago for my brother and his son’s when they came over to watch the Vikings loose….again. Man oh man, this season of football is becoming so depressing after such a great start. Just about the only thing that can make the games enjoyable anymore is good food like these meatballs! If there is nothing else to look forward to than food, then I am doing alright.
