Thai Mini Meatballs

Mini Thai Meatballs

Everything tastes better when it’s bite size. That’s a scientific fact. I’m sure it is. It also possibly makes these delicious mini meatballs even more addictive. These are pretty versatile babies and I like to make a double batch at a time and keep them in the fridge for snacks or lunches. I’ve done the traditional “spaghetti” and meatballs thing with these, but I’ve also thrown them in a cucumber salad, devoured them on their own post-workout and served them as cute little appetizers. The best thing about them? I can’t choose! They’re super fast to make because I don’t roll them, I portion them out using a little cookie scoop. But the other great thing about these mini meatballs is that they’re super fast to cook because they’re so teeny. I still haven’t made up my mind which of those two positives is the best. One thing’s for sure, though, it’s hard to keep hold of these mini meatballs because everybody loves them!

    1. I’m pretty addicted to them! Just scoop, plop & bake! I usually have to fight the Mr for them, though, so I will make them in a double batch 🙂
