Grandma's Homemade Meatballs

This weekend, I attended a book festival, which is always a delight for me as I get to catch up with old friends and discover new authors. At this festival, I had the pleasure of meeting a new author named Deanna Turner, who wrote the book Where Grandma Keeps the Good Stuff.

While many participants at festivals typically distribute stickers, postcards, or candy, Deanna took a unique approach by handing out recipe cards featuring her grandmother's recipe for Meatballs. Intrigued by this thoughtful gesture, I asked for the recipe, and with her kind permission, I'm excited to share it with all of you.

  • 2 LBS Ground Round

  • 1 C Cornflakes Crumbled

  • 1/3 C Parsley Flakes

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1/s C catsup

  • 2 T minced onions 

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 C Cranberry Sauce

  • 2 T lemon juice

  • 2T brown sugar

At the bottom of the recipe card, she wrote "Always focus on the good stuff!" A great recipe and a great thought for the day.
