Bobby Flay’s Meatball {and sauce!} Recipe


Oh man, you know a meatball is good when you can get your one-and-a-half year old toddler to devour them. If you put these meatballs on one side of the room, and her prized Winnie the Pooh stuffed animal on the other, I’m fairly certain that she’d choose the meatballs. Well played, Bobby Flay… well played.

Perhaps Bobby Flay’s Meatball {and sauce!} the triple meat combo. Perhaps it’s the way they cook to perfection in my trusty dutch oven. (That thing conducts heat so well.) Whatever it is though, we all just love them. With spaghetti, in a sub, as a snack on their own with a sprinkle of cheese on top… you just can’t beat them.
