Italian Sausage Meatballs Recipe

There are so many different types of recipes for meatballs- it’s amazing. This family loves spaghetti and meatballs so I like to try and change it up a little bit. The cool thing about this Italian Sausage Meatballs Recipe is that the flavors will automatically change with the sausage recipe that is being used. If you want to turn up the heat you cans use hot Italian, or if you prefer it on the lighter site you can go with mild or regular. For this recipe I used the local stores version of regular Italian sausage and it was excellent. The recipe here is doubled from the original because I have some big eaters. The number of meatballs will be largely determined by the size you want to make them; rolling meatballs can be a little time consuming, so for me, the bigger the better and my family likes them on the large side. So if you have a favorite Italian Sausage recipe give this Italian Sausage Meatballs Recipe a try, it is a great spaghetti and meatball combination. Enjoy

Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

 

In an attempt to get away from red meat a little bit I decided on this Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf Recipe. This is a simple recipe with not a lot of prep time. The recipe calls for Colby cheese, which I did use, but I think American cheese would work just as well. Be sure to allow enough cooking time; it did take a good hour before it was done. I served the Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf with a potato casserole dish, but  it would also go great with mashed potatoes or rice. If you would like to get away from the red meat a little bit give this Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf Recipe a try and enjoy.
