Meatball Appetizer

Easter is just around the corner. For many, the Easter holiday means family gathering together to celebrate Christ’s ultimate sacrifice and resurrection. If your family is anything like mine, food is usually involved! Whether it is a big, fancy meal, potluck, or just snack-type foods, I have an excellent recipe for you: Meatballs.

These meatballs are so versatile. They can be used in many different types of recipes and with a wide variety of sauces, are great as an appetizer or even a main meal, and can easily feed a crowd. The best part about meatballs is that they are so incredibly simple to make. I often make huge batches when
I find ground beef and/or Italian sausage on sale. I bake them and freeze them as an easy go-to meal on a busy night.

1 pound Italian sausage
1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
2 eggs, whisked

1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon salt and pepper
1⁄2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients.
  3. Using your hands, mix until all meat, egg, and seasoning is well combined.
  4. Using two spoons or a mini “ice-cream” scoop, make mini meatballs. Scoop 1”– 1 1⁄2 ” balls and place on a pre-sprayed sheet pan. Wet hands and roll the meat into balls.
  5. Bake meatballs for 12-15 minutes until brown and cooked through.

Your meatballs are now ready for the freezer or whatever delicious recipe you choose!

Hey mamas, My name is Brandi Carson, and I am a homeschooling mama to 5 littles, first generation Christian, lover of food, friends, and dark chocolate, frugal thrift shopper who loves to find a good deal or a new project to work on and create. I am a mama that became a Christian after I started having babies.

My husband and I got married very young and started a family right away. Life has been a series of many trials that we have had to work through, like having a daughter with severe ADHD, moving to 4 different states in 2 years, health problems and just life in general. Through the years the Lord has shown me so much grace and love and has taught me so much about how to be humble, show love and grace.

Each day I strive to be the best mama and wife I can be and fulfill the calling the Lord has placed in my life. I have a passion to help other mamas in any way I can. I am still a work in progress and make mistakes like everyone else and am nowhere near perfect but I am learning to pick myself up, forgive myself and keep seeking the Lord in all I do.

We are finally settled in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado for the past few years where the Lord has allowed us to build a house and grow roots. He brought me the Help Club for Moms and the amazing community I get to be a part of.
