Making Meatballs Effortless With One Simple Recipe

You’ll be the most popular person at any potluck when you show up with these delicious meatballs.

My son’s basketball team was wrapping up the season, and they had a great year. They didn’t quite make it to the finals, but they preformed the best that we had seen them to date. We were all so proud of them as parents, and they were proud of themselves too. In order to let them get a little bit of a celebration in, we decided that we would host a potluck dinner at the school. That’s when they could all get their awards and recognition as well.

They sent around a sign up sheet of what everyone was going to bring. There were a lot of desserts and sides on it, but I noticed not a ton of main meat entrees. I went to my old stand-by and signed up for meatballs. People love meatballs.

I used this recipe and it was a huge hit among everyone that was there. There were a few other kinds on the table, but these were the first to go. You’ll have to check it out!
