Who doesn’t love meatballs? They are so versatile! Besides putting them in spaghetti, which is always a hit, you can use them in sandwiches, pizza, with gravy, or serve them on their own as an appetizer. Nothing but good things happen when you have delicious spheres of seasoned meat.

I looked up meatballs on Wikipedia and was so interested to find that so many countries have their own signature version of meatballs. A few fun facts I learned:

  • In Afghanistan, meatballs sometimes include plum seeds to add tartness.
  • Albanian meatballs usually contain feta cheese. (Yum!)
  • Chinese meatballs called Lion’s Heads can be up to 10cm in diameter!
  • Finnish meatballs are sometimes made with reindeer meat.

Wherever you’re from, I’m sure you’ll enjoy these twelve meatball recipes. Some of them feature homemade meatballs, and others use frozen prepared meatballs as a shortcut.

1. These Quinoa Meatball Pizza Cups are quick and easy to make, and I even show you how with a video tutorial! They are just as good for dinner as they are for a party food.

2. When we’re talking meatballs, I had to include a recipe for Classic Spaghetti and Meatballs. This version by House of Yumm is tops!
