Anyone out there have a secret recipe, or even a secret ingredient that would boost the flavor and “wow” factor of the humble meatball? Is using a blend of meats the answer? Adding fat? Veggies?

Or should I just throw up my hands and say “ya know what, Joel? You just don’t LIKE meatballs. Dont try to reinvent them. Just DONT MAKE THEM!”
Joel , I re-read your OP and I have a question for you:
What is it about MeatBalls that you don't like?
Is it the texture, taste, smell, appearance?
All of our senses play a part in how we perceive food (and pretty much everything else in our world's), I'm curious what triggers your dislike.

Well I'll be darned, you're right MsM. Normally I have no problem posting a link that works. Then again, I usually take it for a test drive by checking in "Preview". Didn't do it this time, so of course it didn't work!

OK, it worked when I just tested it. See if it works for you, too. If not, I used the "Advance Search" feature in the upper-right corner, filled in only the box for "Keyword(s)" on the upper left of the Search page, then clicked "Search Now" near the bottom of the page, searching in "All open forums". Hope this helps you.

Is that served over buttered egg noodles? Or was that just pacannis’ idea? It looks wonderful. Thank you

That sounds wonderful Kay, and what a fun thread! I just read through it. Pacanis, if you're reading here, you are missed.

Works for me! Thanks, CG. Meatballs....yum. There are sooo many good ideas there. Since I'm cooking for one, I usually make up a boatload of meatballs a couple times a year with simple seasoning and freeze them in small batches, so that I can pull some out and re-season them depending upon how I want to use them.

I also do what GG mentioned, and use a "panade" (I never knew it had a name ) but basically bread soaked in milk to help make them nice and tender.

Hmm, I've had kofte many many times from places that range from street carts, to restaurants, to past (Turkish)and present (Lebanese) neighbor's houses, and they were never ball shaped. Oblong, or meatloaf-y, or patty shaped, or on kebabs, but never round like a meatball.

But a google search has proved that incorrect. So much for personal experience.

Unusual meatballs? ISO unique recipes! I don’t like meatballs much, as they exist in American cuisine. I did a search on google for “meatball recipes for people who don’t like meatballs” and all I came up with were recipes for Swedish meatballs and “what you’re doing wrong” articles. Anyone out there have a secret recipe, or even a secret ingredient that would boost the flavor and “wow” factor of the humble meatball? Is using a blend of meats the answer? Adding fat? Veggies?
