One I did recently that I enjoyed was ground turkey, a touch of cinamon, a little bit of salt and pepper, butter, crumbs and... something. Woke up from a nap so Im not feeling all that sharp but any way's they where slightly spicy and very good with pasta. One last thing, instead of meatballs I did 'em as little tiny sausages (basically slightly rolled meatballs) about the size of a viena sausage, it gave them a nice presentation.

I don't really have anything to add, I was just afraid that this thread was going to involve Rocky Mountain Oysters!

Hmmm...

Chicken or prime rib: Chipotle meatballs with a couple of quartered hard boiled eggs.

For the oriental: iron man noodles, 1 spoon black bean paste, oyster suace, fresh serrano peppers and big chunks of onion, broccoli and other fresh vegetables.

Pork Teriyaki: a dense sauce consisting of mirin, dark mushroom soysauce, about half a kirin and whatever fresh veggies I have on hand besides shitakes. This would thicken into a nasty black glaze that the meatballs would be tossed in and then served atop soba noodles with a sprinkle of garlic/pepper oil.

Pork greek: served hot on top of shredded lettuce, cucombers, carrots and red onion with some diced cheese, oil and red wine vinagre with some pitas on the side.

Talking

Well, I'd take the Greek pork balls and
subsitute ground lamb add bread crumbs (garlic flavored)
an egg, some minced (very finely) onion, some salt, pepper,
Greek Oregano ( grown on a mt. top in Greece by a very old Greek Grandma) and some parsley, Then fry them up in EVOO.
I'd serve them with freshly steamed spinach and and Greek potatoes. Ok, I'm hungry!!
