1. Can I use ground turkey instead of ground beef or ground pork?
Yes, ground turkey can be switched with any kind of meat. Ali specifically uses turkey in her meatloafs!
2. What if I want to add onions to my meatballs?
Onions are great in meatballs. Ali recommends cooking some diced onions in oil, salt, and pepper and then let them cool and add them to your meatballs! You will want to make sure they are cool because you will not want hot onions cooking your meat.
3. What is the weirdest meatballs you have seen?
Ali makes a lot of unusual and tasty meatballs! She mentions making French Onion Meatballs, Buffalo Chicken Meatballs, and Chicken Cordon Blue Meatballs! Anything can be a meatball, get creative!
4. What is the difference between baking and frying meatballs?
The main difference is your health, baking is much healthier. Also, frying can get messy!
5. What if I want to use a different bread other than plain white?
That depends on the type of meatball you are making. If you wanted to make a reuben meatball use rye bread. If you have pumpernickle bread try adding some cream cheese and spinach! Don’t be afraid of it coming out bad, it will taste good!
6. What if I want to meal prep with meatballs?
Meatballs are a great meal prepping food. When you make your batch of meatballs only cook what you are plannng on eating that night. Meatballs should be stored in the freezer uncooked. If you put a cooked meatball in the freezer it will be a very dense meatball.
