Meatballs, in the most basic sense, are made from ground meat that has been formed into dense, round shapes. The type of meat used can vary, from lean ground beef to fatty ground pork or veal. You can even use fish! When making meatballs, the meat is enhanced with moist breadcrumbs, flavored with herbs, spices or cheese, and then an egg is added as a binder to help hold the meat’s round form.

Thanks to their popularity and flexibility, you’ll see meatballs in various dishes — served as appetizers, added to pastas, mixed into soups or even skewered and grilled during outdoor picnics. Different countries have their own version of this tasty little dish.
