Spicy meatballs recipe wanted - what's yours?

Hi EFers

I'm on the hunt for new meat recipes which combine meat and veggies. So - which are your favorite meatball recipes and what do you add to them to prevent their falling apart too quickly in (loads of) sauce?

Thanks

IKEA meatballs, tin of chopped tomatoes, chilli powder, oxo cube. Boil until bored.

I'm an epicure, me.

I like the dish "Königsberger Klopse".
They're not really spicy, but I still like them from time to time.
Best consumed fresh, but they are freezable (the sauce less so, as it doesn't come out very nice)

I usually use this recipe, without the egg:

Delia's got this covered, as usual: http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/c...ash-sauce.html. Just modulate the spice as much as you want.

The key to making sure they don't fall apart seems to be egg (duh) and some amount of breadcrumbs directly in the mix.

Spicy Chicken and Mango Meatballs:

Ground chicken,
Egg,
Breadcrumbs
Green onion, chopped fine
Clove of fresh garlic, pressed.
Red and yellow sweet peppers, chopped very fine
Jalepeńo or other hot chili, chopped fine
Cilantro, chopped
Fresh mango, chopped fine. I've done this with peaches or nectarines as well.
Grated zucchini
Juice of fresh lime
Leftover roasted corn is a good addition, if you have any.

Spice to taste - I usually use Penzey's jerk mix, but even just black pepper will do.

I've not given proportions - this is a 'cook by feel' recipe.

A trick for meatballs if you want to avoid the mess of frying:

Use a greased mini muffin pan, one meatball per muffin slot. Bake in oven. Or if you want to cut the fat even further and don't mind flattening the meatballs a bit so that they don't roll around, bake them on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper.


If the mixture is too dry, add a bit more zucchini, maybe some chopped tomatoes or even a spoonful of plain joghurt.


FYI, the basic Midwestern Meatball or Meatloaf recipe, mom's go-to clean out the fridge meal, is:
Ground meat
Egg
Breadcrumbs or oatmeal
Any and all leftover veggies, chopped fine.

Try Koftas with rice and yogurt. Might not be the exact thing you wanted but it is a yummy dish.
