NATIONAL MEATBALL DAY
On March 9th, we recognize one of the great American food holidays, National Meatball Day.
It is not clear how this day got started, but who can resist the idea of celebrating National Meatball Day? There are many different ways to celebrate meatballs:
- Spaghetti and meatballs
- Swedish Meatballs
- Meatball Sub
- Meatball Pizza
- Turkey Meatballs
- Lamb Meatballs
- Porcupine Meatballs (made with rice)
- and the list goes on and on.
We can’t put a number on the variety of meatballs in the world. Nor can we limit how many you put on your plate. One giant meatball will more than satisfy but a bowlful of smaller ones is easier to share. And as we’ve already pointed out, their variety is unquestionably a selling point. Not only do meatballs allow for variety, but did we mention how flexible they are? Meatballs move from appetizer to side dish to the main dish quite easily. Meatballs can be made the night before and put in the crockpot, or days before, and kept in the freezer.
HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalMeatballDay
To celebrate, some restaurants give a free side order of meatballs, while others are donating money to homeless shelters. Cook yourself up your favorite meatballs or go out and order some from a restaurant near you! You can even try this tangy Apple Butter Meatball Sub recipe. Share your favorite recipes with friends and family. They’re sure to ask for seconds!
