My meatballs are not the typical meatballs that you see on the websites. NCF does not carry veal. And no matter how much I petition Dan for Rose Veal he still says “No”. So I need a good substitute. LAMB to the rescue, now this we do carry. And even those like my sister who hate the taste of Lamb will go “Wow, this is so good”. In this little loves story we will use ground Lamb, Pork, and Beef. If you would like a beefier flavor the NCF store does carry Ground Chuck $11 lb.This recipe is going to make somewhere around 60-65 meatballs. Needless to say even after feeding 5 adults, 2 kids, and a baby.
I still have enough left over for meatballs subs & another pot of marinara. The NCF Store prices are
- Ground Pork $ 6.50 lb
- Ground Beef $9 lb
- Ground Lamb $10lb
This does sound a bit pricey I know but when you consider the amount of meatballs & the freezer dinner pleaser ahead it is worth it. The other ingredients are not as pricey. You should be able to make the meatballs for under $30. At an average of 4 per person per meal a family of 4 should get 3-4 meals. And you can serve these just about any way you want, as subs, with mushroom gravy on rice, with marinara & pasta, or plain.
