As I have gotten older I have gotten lazier, so now I often use the oven for meaty balls.
Particularly if I am making a lot, which I am prone to do. We are both children of Great Depression parents, and we tend to make more than we need - sometimes by a lot.
It is something that cannot be taken out of us. But it leads to us having a lot of leftovers.
The nuker, we love it. Our old one died and we went out and bought a new one immediately. Cannot believe how cheap they have become since we bought our first one.
It is great for warming things up.
But for cooking meatballs, I don't use it.
The nuker tickles the water molecules in the stuff and it does get cooked. But somehow I just don't like how the food turns out.
So I roast or take out my pots and pans. Or pull out the tired old grill.
Just the way I do things.
Take care and God bless.
