Default How to grill Meatballs ?

I saw in the Kraft food magazine that they skewered meatballs and grilled them. DS and I liked the idea, but have no idea how to do it ....

Any ideas on the size of the meatball ? What (spices) to mix into the meatballs, etc ? Sauce for the top ?

Thanks !

As to skewered meatballs I've never tried them. Now with that said if you want an Italian taste then use and Italian seasoning in the mix or a standard Italian meat ball being veil, pork and ground beef, an egg, bread crumbs, sautéed onion etc. For this I would probably go more the Swedish type meat ball of pork, beef, bread crumbs and an egg. As for topping your favorite jarred pasta sauce for the Italian or a beef/cream for the Swedish or many other dipping sauces of your choice. Now in closing as for size I would make them small say about the size of a half dollar to a ping pong ball.

You said this is for a camping trip then I recommend you make at home and put in a cooler to take with you as they don't keep well at room temperature even cooked. I know the raw meats won't keep with out refrigeration a day with out it.

Well, I've never done it either, but I wouldn't put much more thought into it than as if you were making small hamburgers.
Mix something tasty into the meat, roll it into a ball, the smaller the ball the more quickly it will cook, and cook them til you think they are done, like a burger. Typically until the juices run clear. It could probably even be a little well done, since you are going to dip them anyway.
Hmmm, BBQ sauce and sauted onions? Some kind of cheese sauce like melted Velveeta and a liitle worcestershire? Or hot sauce? The possibilities are endless.

I'm so glad you asked!!!

Check this link where I do exactly that! I do this all the time, and on a gas grill, set the heat to low, have 3/4" meatballs, and they rest easily on the grates. Just "roll" them instead of flipping them, and they are great!

I made gyros a while back. Made the meat like a meatloaf only using pork though. formed the meat onto skewers like a hotdog shape and grilled them.

I guess you could do that with beef....alot more friendlier meatball sub shape. Grilled meatball sub. lol
