There aren’t a lot of dinner recipes that we make over and over again. If you’ve been following this site for any length of time you’ll know that we rarely use recipes, we often just utilize whatever is in the pantry or fridge and piece things together like that.
This recipe is probably the one exception to the rule: meatballs.
I’m always sticking veggies where they don’t belong. It may not sound like it makes sense, but you’re just going to have to trust me on this. The mirepoix blends with the meat and breadcrumbs so effortlessly that the end result is this very slightly sweet, creamy, succulent little meatball.
When I know we’re going to have a busy day I just take a bag out of the freezer, put them in a crockpot and cover with the sauce. Let it cook on low all day long and when dinner time rolls around you’re good to go.
My husband will even pull some out as a late night snack. He’ll pull a few from the freezer and pan fry hem until they’re cooked throughout, then eat as a sandwich or with leftovers like rice or mashed potatoes.
They’re fail proof, I promise!
Give them a try and let me know what you think. Also, just for fun, leave a comment and let me know you prefer to eat meatballs: with pasta, on a sub, with rice or mashed potatoes? I won’t judge!
