Meat and Potatoes, Vegetarian style!

A couple years ago a member of the ward I grew up in made the most amazing meatballs I've ever had for my family, and I finally got the recipe from her!

This dish is so amazing that I just had to find a way to vegetarian-ify it. And yes, folks, it can be done!
Vegetarian meatballs:

  1. 1 pkg. soy crumbles (or 1 lb. of ground beef... if you're into that stuff...)
  2. 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1/2 cup milk 
  5. 2 tsp. Salt
  6. 1 pinch pepper
  7. 3 mozzarella sticks, cut in thirds. 
  8. Spaghetti Sauce
  • Mix together well and shape into tennis ball-sized balls.  
  • Push two pieces of mozzarella sticks side-by-side into the balls. 
  • Cover sticks completely
  • Bake at 350 for 40 mins. 
  • 15 mins. before meatballs finish, add spaghetti sauce to the pan
I admit that I was pretty nervous about this recipe, but they were amazing! Ben ate four for dinner!
Seriously, you have to try these meatballs. Meat or no meat, they just can't be beat :)


  1. What did you eat with them? I can't tell from the picture.

  2. PS> You said "amazing" 3 times in this post. How do you really feel about these meatballs?? ;-)

  3. Well,

    I just made them for dinner.

    They are indeed AMAZING. Well done, Suz!

    You should submit them to Morning Star Farm's website. They are truly excellent. My carnivore husband is currently snarfing them up!
