This meatball recipe serves as the basis of any meatball I make. Tweaking the recipe-- substituting meats, or adding fresh herbs-- lets you create a more personal dish. Foolproof. If a make a big batch and leave the meatballs in the fridge for sandwiches, they go fast.

Excellent combo. We like to add this to fish tacos. Also works nicely with any grilled meat, poultry or fish.

This dish is Thanksgiving-worthy. I made it this year along with the required mashed potatoes and roast sweet potatoes -- I'm attempting to move toward lighter sides that complement the turkey and this does the trick. Adds nice texture to the plate. It's time consuming, so I like to serve this when I have some help in the kitchen. Because the...

Based on the previous reviews I made certain to add fresh herbs and heat (red pepper) to the mix. On other occasions, I've added la variety of ingredients to the basic recipe-- including meats and...

This dish is terrific. I've made it on several occasions-- most recently for family over the holidays. It's simple, but the flavors will prompt compliments from everyone around the table. The meat is always tender. Leftovers don't last long. Outstanding.

Reviewed Meat Loaf

Jan 3, 2014 on

This is a go to recipe in my house. The meatloaf is delicious-- not too dense but holds together nicely when sliced. I monitor the cooking time with a thermometer b/c I have noticed that the cooking time varies, which is probably a function of the temp of the meat/s when the ingredients are assembled. My husband loves to reheat the leftover meatloaf...

Perfect! I had some extra roast chicken and roast veggies in the fridge. Whipped up some pastry and this bechamel for a small pot pie. I halved the recipe and while heating the milk added sprigs of rosemary and thyme. Very satisfied with the sauce and pot pie. Will definitely use this recipe again for white lasagna and mac n cheese. Easy. Consistency...

Made these in the past for family and everyone was happy - easy to pull together. Super delicious and elegant. I'm about to whip up another batch for an informal dinner with friends. Cupcakes make the party-- right? Definitely give this recipe a try. It's a keeper.""
