Garden Fresh Meatballs

Crowded Earth Kitchen


Today we’re making a whole lot of delicious meatballs – plenty for dinner tonight AND plenty for your freezer.  I like to smother trays of these meatballs with I Miss My Garden Sauce, shown above, and freeze for a day when I’m too busy to cook (it happens).  Just thaw, heat, and serve!

I’ve experimented with ground beef of varying fat contents, and I find that 85% lean makes the best meatballs.  You can use leaner ground beef if you wish, but when I’ve used, say, 93% lean, I feel like I am paying more only to end up with dry meatballs.  Feel free to try different types of ground beef; the decision is entirely up to you.
