meatballs were premade frozen. I was having oven issues. the gravy has Kitchen Bouquet, flour, butter, green onion, salt, garlic powde and milk. I can't remember if I put pepper in it or not.

i have never bought frozen premade meatballs. are they plain with like just onion, bread and eggs? or spicey like an italian meatball? or do they have both? you like kitchen bouquet for gravy teehee i am a gravy master girl. LOL green onion in the gravy? yummy!! have you ever added a dab of spicey prepared brown mustard in the meatball gravy? gives it a little zip. i am gonna try green onion in my gravy next time.

I think I have bought that brand before. I'm not sure what these were. I like to have stuff like that on hand, just in case.

I buy frozen turkey meatballs frequently, as they're nice to have on hand for impromptu pasta or meatball sub sandwich meals. Both Shady Brook Farms & Harris Teeter brands have been excellent, but I'd definitely avoid the Aidell (of sausage fame) brand, as their meatball product tends to be inedibly salty.

Regardless, they're all seasoned, but not particularly spicy. But of course that's easy to rectify via the sauce you use with them.

They have frozen country/home-style meatballs and italian. Something else I love to do is throw meatballs in the crock-pot with some Yoshida's Gourmet Marinade and Cooking Sauce (sweet teriyaki kind). .... that makes a fast throw-together for a potluck or impromptu occasion.
