Mama mia that's tasty meatball!

I couldn't decide whether to go traditional, or do something crazy. I thought up some creative, crazy ideas, but I couldn't think of anything crazy that I'd actually want to eat for supper.

So, I went traditional.

I started by making a sauce on Saturday, so it could sit overnight, allowing the flavors to meld together.

Sauce

Large can diced tomatoes
Small can tomato sauce
Dice onions
Minced garlic
Mushrooms
Dried oregano
Dried basil
Olive oil



Today, I mixed up my meatballs, and let them firm up in the fridge for a few hours, before putting them on the red-head, indirect heat at 350 degrees.

Meatballs

1 pound ground chuck
1 pound ground pork
Chopped onion
Bread crumbs
2 eggs
Dried oregano
Dried basil
Grated pecorino roman cheese



Then, it's on to the grill…



Then, a little rest…



I cooked up some Spaghetti, sauced it, added the meatballs and some more sauce, and dinner is served.

The money shot, with fork crutch…



YUM!

Very nice meatballs CD.

Looks like you put some shrooms in the sauce too. If so, please tell me you aren't driving anywhere tonight...

Default Nacho Balls!

I thought I would try something a bit different for the meatball TD. I ran my idea accross Guerry Friday and he thought it was pretty cool. So here we go. I made up some taco seasoning.



Mixed a couple tablespoons with some ground chuck, an egg and some bread crumbs.




Mixed that up and set aside while I prepared the cheese filling. I used Mexican Velveeta with our own pickled jalapeno slices in the middle.




Then I coated the cheese balls in chopped black olives.



I then wrapped the black olive encrusted, jalapeno stuffed cheese balls in the meatball mixture.




On the grill.



While they were grilling I made up some guacamole.



There're done!



But wait, there's more!!!! Now comes the wicked part, I'm gonna coat these suckers in crushed corn chips and deep fry them!







I served these babies up with salsa, sour cream with green onions and guacamole.



Mmmm, look at that cheese oozing!



One of these will be the TD shot but I'm not sure which one yet.





These were about the size of tennis balls and very rich, cheesy, meaty and crunchy. Deguerre ate 4 , hope he doesn't have a tummy ache in the morning! Thanks for looking!

Hey, redhot is back. And, of course deguerre is on board, because he is probably lit. That, and the SWOOSH thing.

I'm with you on everything but the black olives. I just don't like them. Sorry. Looks great, otherwise.

There are some great entries here, brethern! Here is my attempt.

I made up some meatballs today! I mixed 1 pound of ground beef with 1 pound of hot Italian sausage along with some herbs and spices.



I added some parmesan cheese and some bread crumbs,



I rolled the meat into balls and put it in the fridge for about 6 hours to hang out. I made two big ones for the meatball throw down and stuffed one of them with a surprise.



I fired up the keg to about 350F indirect, added some wine to the pan and in went the meatballs.



Here is an in progress cook pic.



And, here are some pics of dinner! My wife was very impressed with the flavor. I have to say that it was pretty good too.



This is the TD pic.



Thanks for looking!

Michele, fantastically creative entry! I like how you combined the roasted cheese corn pieces (Or whatever the general calls them) into the meatballs. If for any reason that doesn't make sense, don't worry...you haven't missed much around here.

Glad to see you back posting here again!

Boshizzle, is that mozzarella in the stuffed balls?

I thought about putting fresh mozzarella in my balls, but backed down. I'm having second thoughts now.

It's actually one of those little Laughing Cow cheese "balls." I made a grilled cheese sammy a while back using some cheddar and a chopped up LC cheese ball and it was really ooey and gooey. So, I decided to stuff a meatball with it and it turned out pretty good.
