Shrimp Balls

Getting down to the last couple of meatballs! These were a riff on a shrimp burger recipe I’ve made before (and I served these as sliders).

Chicken A La King Balls

One more meatball! We’re down to only four more left after this. The project is winding down!

I based these on the chicken a la king I made not too long ago. They were pretty good!

Becky’s Family Meatballs (Danish and Italian)

Not one, but two meatball recipes comin’ atcha. And this time, with a guest star!

Ever since this project began, I’ve been excited to pair up with Becky to make both of her family recipes for meatballs. I had only had her Dad’s in the past (and loved them) but knew her Mom was a great Italian cook (and I’ve had several of her great dishes) so knew those would be worth trying as well. As expected, both were terrific, and it was really fun to make them with Coop.

Now, these are Becky’s family recipes, and as a result, have been written down very free-form. There aren’t measurements for many of the items, etc. But we made do by eyeing things until Becky thought they looked/felt right. Photo here isn’t great because I recently got a new phone, so this is a makeshift shot cropped from Instagram.

Meatballs Stroganoff

I love meatballs. I love stroganoff. Unsurprisingly, I loved stroganoff meatballs.

This recipe relies heavily on the sauce I use when I make this dish, with some minor improvisation. The meatballs are relatively straightforward, using meatloaf mix and adding a punch of dill. Easy and satisfying and good with buttered egg noodles.

“Eyeballs and Brains” Puttanesca

Missy’s Meatball Project gets into the Halloween spirit! Made these for Mandy’s spooky game night and they were a hit! And much better than my first attempt at puttanesca meatballs that I threw out earlier in the year, hehe. Anchovy paste problems. I made a double batch of meatballs here but am scaling down for a single.

Chicken Meatballs Paprikash

These were ok. I don’t feel like I got the sauce exactly right, even if I made it similar to John’s paprikash recipe.

Chorizo Meatballs

These were really easy, though I think they work better as a component (we had with scrambled eggs; I could also see them in tacos) than on their own. Also, they were a little salty even though I used less salt than the recipe called for. Still not bad, and cool to make chorizo myself.

UPDATE: Confirmed that these are really good as tacos. I did sort of a taco/quesadilla hybrid with two of these for breakfast this morning and wish I could justify eating a second.
