Bisquick Meatball Recipes

Some people think of meatballs as a dish served best with spaghetti. I am one of those people. However, I also enjoy meatballs prepared in different ways. I get bored easily, as most people do, eating the same foods time after time. Here are a few versions of meatball recipes.

History of the Meatball

  • A meatball consists of ground meat, usually some spices, and a binding agent such as eggs, flour, or bread crumbs
  • Persian cookbooks were discovered to have some of the earliest meatball recipes
  • Most countries have their own versions of meatball recipes
Pizza Meatballs

Pizza Meatballs

I enjoy this recipe served on spaghetti. My husband and kids both love it on submarine-style bread topped with melted mozzarella.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 lbs ground pork or beef (lean)
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup minced onion
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ cup Bisquick

Instructions
 

  • In a large mixing bowl combine two pounds of ground pork or beef, one cup of parmesan cheese, one-quarter cup of minced onion, one-half cup of milk, two teaspoons of garlic salt, and one-half teaspoon of pepper. Mix well and shape into meatballs. You should have forty-eight to fifty meatballs when done
  • Cut the mozzarella cheese into cubes, equalling the number of meatballs you have prepared. Push a cube of cheese into the center of each meatball, covering with the meat so that none of the cheese is exposed
  • Place one-half cup of Bisquick into a bowl, and roll each meatball until evenly coated
  • Brown the meatballs in a skillet using one-quarter cup of cooking oil over medium-high heat. Drain any excess oil. Pour in two twenty-eight-ounce jars of pizza or marinara sauce
  • Reduce heat, cover, and let cook for an additional thirty minutes
  • Serve on pasta or buns and enjoy

 

Meatball and Cabbage Soup

My family loves ground beef and cabbage soup, so this recipe is a tremendous hit. I usually reserve soup recipes for fall and winter, but this one screams for attention, begging to be made and eaten.Actually, it’s my family begging me to make it, but you get the point. Your home will smell so good while this is simmering. Make sure to close your windows, or you’ll have your neighbors begging for some.

Pastry Wrapped Meatballs

Pastry Wrapped Meatballs

These puff pastry-wrapped meatballs are pretty versatile. They would make a great snack or a meal served with a salad. They would also make perfect hors d’oeuvres for a casual dinner party.
Prep Time 3 mins
Cook Time 1 hr 30 mins
Servings 6 people

Ingredients
  

Puff Pastry

  • cups Bisquick
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups butter (unsalted)

Meatballs

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup Bisquick
  • 1 egg
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 4 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 jar marinara sauce

Instructions
 

Puff Pastry

  • Sift four and one-half cups of Bisquick and one-half teaspoon of salt. Stir in the water gradually, until dough-like consistency forms. Roll into a ball and flatten. Set aside for fifteen minutes to rest.
  • Place two cups of butter between two pieces of parchment paper and roll flat with the use of a rolling pin. Refrigerate for approximately thirty minutes.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to one-half-inch thick. Remove the chilled butter from the refrigerator and place it in the center of the rolled-out dough. Fold the ends of the dough over so that none of the butter is exposed. Roll out the butter-encased dough. (Make sure the butter does not break through the dough.) Fold the dough in half and roll out again to one-half-inch thick. Repeat this process two more times. Place the dough onto a baking sheet and refrigerate for one hour.
  • The dough can now be used

Meatballs

  • Mix one pound of ground turkey, one cup of grated parmesan cheese, one-quarter cup of Bisquick, one egg, one clove of minced garlic, one teaspoon of salt, and one teaspoon of pepper
  • Shape the meat mixture into thirty-six meatballs
  • Heat four tablespoons of canola oil in a skillet and brown the meatballs on all sides
  • Preheat the oven to three hundred and fifty degrees. Grease enough muffin pans to hold thirty-six pastries
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator and cut into thirty-six strips
  • Wrap one strip around each meatball, stretching and sealing around the bottom. Place the dough-wrapped meatballs into the prepared pan and bake for twenty minutes
  • Remove from oven and serve with the marinara sauce for dipping

Final Thought

There are so many options when choosing a perfect meatball recipe. These are three of the best I feel everyone should try at least once. Who knows, they might just become your new favorite.
