Meatballs are awesome. You can easily whip them up without a recipe, using beef, chicken, lamb, or even no meat. They freeze like a dream, ready to feed you (and friends, and family, and unexpected guests) at the drop of a hat. They are excellent every which way, whether swimming in a brothy soup, broiled with cheese and sauce in a meatball sub, set on a plate for a hearty party appetizer, and, of course, over spaghetti (but you already knew that).

Bake them, steam them, fry them, douse them in sauce or serve them over rice. (If you're feeling overwhelmed, check out our handy meatball guide). No matter what you do, here are 13 recipes to convince you to get more meatballs in your life.
