Thanksgiving Meatballs (Original Recipe)

Thanksgiving Meatballs (Original Recipe)



A Secret Family Meatball Recipe that is sure to be a hit with the family on Turkey Day. 

Nobody owns a recipe, recipes are one thing that nobody can copyright.  So keeping this secret has been fun.  Like all family recipes this one comes with a story.

I first came up with the recipe about 10 years ago trying to come up with an appetizer for Thanksgiving.  I wanted something that was traditional, but not traditional.  

This is not a traditional meatball, but the "flavor profile" is absolutely traditional.  I tried it out and it was a hit and I've been making it ever since every year for Thanksgiving. 

I also have been watching the Youtube channels and cooking shows waiting for someone else to come up with this recipe.  It is so simple, makes so much sense, and is so amazing I was sure some celebrity chef like Gordon Ramsay or Bobby Flay would post a video for a recipe very similar to this and have it go viral.

As of yet I have not seen a recipe like this anywhere else on the internet.  In a sense I believe this recipe to be as close to "an original" as recipes can get.  I even scanned it from an actual recipe card I made for it last year. 

With that said, I feel like I have kept this secret long enough and it is time to share it with others. 

If you try this recipe out and enjoy it please return the favor by making a small purchase from this website.  I appreciate all the business I can get.
