Meatballs are just about the most wonderful thing.

And they are DELICIOUS.


You can use ground beef, pork, chicken or turkey to make meatballs to switch up the flavors so easily.

If you eat low carb, you don’t need to add the carbs in the mixture. But be sure to add the egg as this is what will help keep the meatballs from drying out.

Grated vegetables are also great to help add some moisture especially if you are using lean or extra lean ground meat or not adding the bread crumbs which help hold moisture.

Another tip is to add in a tablespoon of oil so the meat does not dry out as it cooks if it’s extra lean. Even a tablespoon or two of milk will help with moisture as well.

  • You can make meatballs just about any size you prefer
  • from 3 tablespoon size which you’d normally find on top of a large bowl of spaghetti in an Italian restaurant
  • to two tablespoon-size meatballs which I refer to as medium size
  • to mini meatballs being one tablespoon in size.

    Whatever size you decide on, adjust the timing accordingly. Larger meatballs will take longer to cook than smaller meatballs, using a thermometer is the best way to check the internal temperature of meatballs.


  • This is my favorite thermometer. This is my all-time favorite instant-read thermometer. And THIS is a smaller less expensive version which was my first purchase from that company and I used it for years… it takes only a few seconds to read the temperature. I have given both for gifts to many and everyone loves them. They come in a great variety of colors which helps when you’re busy to figure out where it is in the kitchen quickly, we usually have one out at the grill and one inside when my husband and I are both cooking at the same time.
  • The internal temperature you should cook ground meatballs to 165° for chicken and turkey and 160° for beef and pork.
