Lately, the girls and I have been trying all types of different meatballs–either making them at home, or dining out.  Our favorite at home recipe by far is pictured above.   It’s actually a recipe from a Rachel Ray cookbook.  You can find it here. The girls and I love this recipe–it’s super easy to make too.  We served  the meatballs with skillet potatoes, and I’ve added the recipe below.


1 pound (approx) of small red potatoes, or any small potato of your liking

Fresh chives

Salt and Pepper

Olive oil

Using a paring knife or peeler, remove center skin from potato, leaving skin on the ends.

Parboil potatoes until just tender when pierced with a fork.  Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add potatoes, and cook until a little brown and crispy.  (6 to 7 minutes)  Season with salt and pepper, and add freshly chopped chives.

    Marrying into an Italian family I had to learn all about meatballs. Kind of like marriage hazing…but I loved it. This recipe looks absolutely delicious and I am printing to try! I recently made some (you can see on my blog) and they were pretty good. I love the pairing of these with potatoes!!

    i’m coming to YOUR house to eat, lol!
    ground turkey is under-rated, imo. i like using it instead of ground beef sometimes.
    do you know why the recipe calls for the skins to be partially removed? (aesthetics, or perhaps they cook better…?)

    Last week, I had the most amazing Moroccan meatballs at a brasserie-style restaurant in St. Paul. I have yet to figure them out at home. Harissa in the beef (or lamb) meatball; braised in a tomato sauce with cumin and coriander; garnished with toasted, sliced almonds and feta. Outrageously delicious.
