What's there not to love about meatballs?! They can be made using avariety of meats (ground beef and ground pork are most commonly used, though meatballs can also be made with chicken, turkey, lamb, fish or any other meat). From there, all kinds of seasonings and herbs can be added into the meat mixture, giving the meatballs distinctly different flavors and textures. If that's not enough, meatballs can be served with all sorts of dipping sauces and/or coated with wonderful sauces that make them ooze with flavor and become dangerously addicting. Another beautiful thing about meatballs s that they not only serve as perfect little appetizers for any type of party, holiday or event, they make great quick snacks that all ages will love and devour, and in most cases can be served as a main course over rice or pasta.
