I forgot to mention that I use fresh bread crumbs. I'm also not that fond of parsley, so I use 1 oz of it and 1 oz of fresh oregano.

Addie, I also use a rack.

The rack does make a difference. The meatballs are not sitting in a pool of grease like they would if you sautéed them. I am all for cutting the grease without sacrificing the flavor.

I tend to prefer lightly sauteeing the finely chopped onions first, cooling and then adding them to the meat mix. I prefer the flavour and texture of this in a meatball.

I use a micro plane to "grate" the onion. Its more of a liquid than actual onion pieces. Really nothing there to saute.

I use a mini FP for the veggies then sauté them for the flavor that adds. I don't like chunks of onion in meatballs.

What a great idea! I think I'll do that next time I make frikadeller. Some pieces of onion fall off while I'm frying the frikadeller and the onion pieces get burnt.

Andy and Craig, thank you for the yummy sounding meatball recipes. Copied and saved. I might have to devote some time to making up a bunch of meatballs to freeze this weekend.

Thumbs up

I like the sound of this meatball recipe....think I would finely chop the fennel - and the onion, for that matter though!

Careful, they just might have an agenda or product to push!

I use the standard Italian recipe that I grew up with and can be found in any cookbook that features Italian cooking. Nothing special that stands out. But I do have admit, I love Swedish meatballs. I think even more than Italian.
