Tips: 
  • Can use any type of ground meat to make meatballs.
  • If using the MP5 to serve meatballs, place temperature on 150°F/65°C to keep warm.
  • Make your own breadcrumbs: place leftover bread from meals in a food processor. Place crumbs in ziplock bag and freeze. You can add to this bag after every meal that has leftover bread (do not add breads that are sweet). When a recipe calls for breadcrumbs, measure and add herbs to taste.
  • Easily turned into a main dish by using white rice, quinoa or pasta as a base. Add a salad and you have a delicious dinner.
