Meatballs For Your Meals
Quick Tasty & Fun

Our family loves it when they have meatballs with their pasta, rice, or potatoes. This recipe is a great, quick, tasty, hearty and healthy addition to any meal. Our kids had such a blast when they had a plate full of mashed potatoes with eyes, ears, a nose and a mouth shaped with meatballs. Veggies became the hair to complete each 'face plate'. This is a recipe your kids will love to help you make, especially shaping the little balls--ideal for your kids little hands. Even without the extra help this will take under 20 minutes and they're ready to cook.

This recipe makes 60 small meatballs, great to add into your main dish but they get gobbled up pretty fast so they are not too likely to make it into the leftovers. You and your family will love these. They're made from the same ingredients as our hamburgers, but once shaped into balls we can add some homemade sauce for some extra variety and textured flavor.

Here is how you can get started and serve these delicious and healthy little morsels to your family this week. This is a great easy recipe for those little helping hands. Our little one loves to make these with his Dad. Have fun and enjoy them together.
