Italian Meatballs Homemade
Ground chicken seasoned with some tasty beef chorizo makes the recipe just a tad bit healthier! However, if you want to choose another type of ground meat, please do so!
There’s just so much flavor in the seasoning mixture, I’m thinking you’re not going to believe you’re eating ground chicken, which sometimes doesn’t have much flavor!
Homemade Italian Meatballs
There’s nothing complicated about making these homemade Italian meatballs.
All you have to do is play in the big mixing bowl bringing all the ingredients together, roll them into balls (your size of the ball is optional), either brown them in a skillet or bake in the oven, then simmer for a while in a really good brand of jarred marinara sauce! Yep, that’s it!
Old Fashioned Italian Meatballs
Now these are old school and old fashioned kinds of balls. Nothing fancy. Just good flavor and some delicious seasonings blended in.
Using the chorizo adds a big dimension of packed flavor to the ground chicken. Actually, ground chicken alone can be kind of bland. It just doesn’t pack the flavor because there’s not that much ‘fat’. So that’s why we’re ramping up the flavor of the ground chicken (or turkey) with the chorizo.
Easy Italian Meatballs
We’re definitely meatball lovers in our family. And, when the grandkids come, this is precisely what they want!
And, for something really fun, try my meatloaf meatballs. Really, isn’t that kind of what meatballs are, little round meatloaf mixtures. Or maybe it’s the other way around!
