Hi there,

I have got some meatballs that need using but the family don't like spaghetti and meatballs- are there any alternatives?

Thank you

On a pizza? With chips and ikea style gravy? Kebabs?

In wraps with cheese and then baked in the oven mmm

Meatball pasta bake?

Anything with cheese really!

I have a really yummy recipe where lamb meatballs are served with a salad made from fried courgettes and tomatoes. There is a garlicky dressing made with tahini, and I serve it with flatbreads.

I'm out and about, so I can't give all the details, but it might inspire you?

In pitta bread with salad and wedges? Or creamy mustard sauce (think its a philadelphia recipe) with fettuccine.

Think of them as round sausages. Opens up accompaniment options a bit.

Spicy tomato sauce, stacks of cheese,into wraps and bake in the oven. One of our favorites

I eat them with mash and gravy
Or
With salad, chilli sauce and yoghurt in a wrap

Yum

We like them swedish style - make a sauce of stock, cream, a splash of soy sauce and pepper. Serve with potatoes/chips/mash and veg.

Swedish style with redcurrant !

Are they in a sauce that can be mopped up w mash or rice? Maybe a sausage casserole type base and gravy. Or in sandwiches a la subway or frikkadellen(sp?). I'd have a go at ikea style using hettienne's instructions - we bought sachets of the powder once to make the sauce but I couldn't face it.

considers meatballs deep in freezer bought from ikea before the horse meat scandal and wonders whether to be brave

Sanity, when you are not out and about could you please post your recipe, it sounds delicious.

We like meatballs simmered in good stock and then served with rice noodles with green veg and the stock for meatball noodle soup.

I turned some left over lamb meatballs into Cornish pasties...was yummy

We like meatballs in tomato sauce (DH mixes some chipotle paste into his) and served with salad, corn and either tortilla wraps, soft sesame coated crusty bread or a toasted ciabatta roll.
