Mediterranean Meatballs

For a flavor-packed Mediterranean twist on classic meatballs, try adding in minced garlic, parsley, oregano, and feta cheese. These ingredients will add amazing depth to your meatballs and give them an authentic Mediterranean flavor. Serve them with a side salad or over rice for a filling and flavorful meal.

Asian Fusion Meatballs

If you’re looking for something with a little more kick, then Asian Fusion meatballs are just what you need. Start by swapping out beef for pork, then add in a mixture of scallions, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, and chili flakes. These ingredients will give your meatballs an amazing depth of flavor that will tantalize your taste buds. Serve these as part of your favorite stir-fry or as a side dish to noodles or rice.

Mexican-Style Meatballs

If Mexican food is more your style, then you have to try Mexican-style meatballs! Start by making your traditional beef or turkey meatball recipe and add in some diced jalapeños for a spicy kick. You can also swap out the traditional tomato sauce topping for enchilada sauce or salsa verde for even more flavor complexity. Serve these over Spanish rice or with black beans and tortillas for a complete meal.
