Meatballs are infinitely versatile; they can be filled with lots of vegetables (think chopped carrots and celery) and they can be dressed in different sauces. They can be made with ground chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, or veal (or even a combination). I hope these six meatball variations inspire you in the kitchen to reinvent this dinner staple. My basic recipe yields 35 1-inch balls.
