Oh, the mighty meatball. Known for its comfort food flavors and endless versatility, the meatball can be enjoyed as a standalone appetizer or as a hearty accompaniment to dinner. And although we would never pass up a heaping plate of spaghetti and meatballs or a meatball slider on game day, we were convinced that the meatball had possibilities far beyond the spaghetti noodle.
So without further ado, we’d like to introduce four brilliant takes on pork meatballs. These meatballs offer flavors from across the globe, and are surprisingly simple thanks to Progresso™ panko bread crumbs and seasonings you’ll find right in your own pantry. They are the perfect addition to a weeknight dinner, but each comes with its own dipping sauce (homemade Tzatziki? Yes, please!) so you’ll never be without a party-ready appetizer idea. It’s like the gift that keeps on giving.
Each recipe starts with ground pork and bread crumbs, and gets a savory kick from add-in ingredients like taco seasoning or crumbled feta cheese. Whether you serve them on a plate of noodles or a toothpick or even stuff them in a taco, one thing is for sure—you’ll never buy meatballs from the store again.
