Why not serve your meatballs with mushroom or carrot sauce.
Or leave them just plain and serve with a salad.

I like Amy's idea about a falafel like sandwich except using meatballs instead of falafel.

To me there is little better than a meatball sandwich. Usually add a tomato based sauce but one can use others. Or add lettuce, tomatoes, any sorta stuff you want including mayo.

Also agree with Amy on soup.

A minestrone with meatballs would be great. Or in a pasta fagioli (pasta fazool).

A Polish type hunter's stew, a bigos, type of dish could include meatballs.

Just a few ideas, enjoy.

Looks very good Mama. Thanks for the recipe and the pictures.

I love meatballs !!
When I want a snack of appetizer I put KikkomanTeriyaki
Baste & Glaze in a small bowl and roll the cooked meat-
balls in it. I place the coated meatballs on a foil covered
broil pan and cook at 400 degrees, turning when each side
begins to bubble.
you could skewer these with pineapple in between and
cook the same. Cook down the canned pineapple juice and
some of the glaze combined to make a sauce and serve
over rice. Add minced garlic and ground ginger and you
have an original.

Sometimes with leftover meatballs, I cut them in large chunks, fry them up with potatoes, and add an egg at the end. Serve it up on a nice piece of bread.

elaine's idea sounds fantastic!

I was going to suggest some good ol' fashioned tortellini soup if you have the time and ingredients.
