I hope someone can give me some suggestions here. After my daughter's wedding, there was a ton of leftover meatballs (they were appetizers). They have been frozen, but we are sick of just spaghetti with meatballs and tomato sauce. Does anyone have some imaginative recipes that will incorporate cooked meatballs? Please help. I dread being invited over to dinner at her house, because I know what's on the menu.

We like to make meatball subs. Use nice sub sandwich bread or a baguette and place the meatballs and sauce on the bottom. Then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, bell peppers, onions, jalapenos, etc. and broil for a min. or two in the oven. This is one of my favorite meals!

We heat frozen meatballs in barbecue sauce for a different flavor. I've also been known to cut meatballs in halves or quarters and add them to soups (they're great in a minestrone-type soup) or in lasagnas in place of the ground beef or Italian sausage. We also make meatball sub sandwiches. You might be able to thaw them, tear them apart, and make some sort of sloppy joes out of them.

Ditto on the meatball sub or grinder sandwiches. Or a pita bread type sandwich. I just saw a show on tv where a mom & pop restaurant made meatballs and then smashed them and put them in chili. Supposedly gives it a different taste than just cooking the crumbled raw ground meat and then cooking and adding.

Dipped in a cheese fondue would be good. Depending on the size of them slicing and putting on top of a pizza might be good.

What about sharing with someone less fortunate that you? Perhaps a soup kitchen, a family who is out of work, elderly who can't cook for themselves, etc. Everyone comes out a winner!
