Southwestern Meatballs
Since I love all things spicy, I decided to make Southwestern meatballs. A healthy dose of serrano peppers gives some serious kick. Be careful with them, though — they are typically about five times hotter than jalapeños! I had my balls with some whole-wheat pasta and marinara sauce. Try these for a quick and easy meal or serve these at your next party.

Swedish Meatballs
Swedish meatballs can be served as a main course, traditionally with boiled potatoes, lingonberry jam, and cucumber salad. Although called "Swedish," meatballs having this same type of flavoring can be found throughout Scandinavia and other Northern European countries. They also make terrific finger food or cocktail hors d’oeuvre served on toothpicks. They reheat very well and, in fact, the flavor is even better after an overnight rest in the fridge.

This meatball recipe comes from Michael Ferraro of Delicatessen, and it was passed down from his father, who taught him how to make them at a very young age. When Ferraro joined the team at Delicatessen in 2008, he invited his father into the restaurant to give a lesson to the entire kitchen staff for how to perfect this sacred family recipe. When Ferraro makes meatballs, he soaks his breadcrumbs in a stock instead of milk. Click here to read How to Make a Better Meatball

The secret to chef Kevin Garcia’s meatballs at his restaurant Morello is thick, decadent brioche bread used as breadcrumbs. Garcia believes in an 80/20 ratio of meat to fat, and warns not to overwork your meat mixture. By overworking it, you force out the air and create a dense meatball. He also likes to make his a day advance and let them sit in the sauce before he serves them. "Although not scientifically proven, meatballs usually taste better the next day, [because] they have time to absorb the flavor of the tomato braise," he tells us.
