Whether you are feeding a crowd of party guests or just a pack of hungry kids, meatballs are always a hit. Go traditional and serve them on top of pasta, or get inventive and put them in a hoagie roll, or on top of a salad or pizza. Here’s eight ways to use meatballs, some classic, some out-of-the-ordinary (and totally extraordinary)!

1. Slow Cooker Sweet Barbecue Meatballs

Easy slow cooker barbecue meatballs combine the sticky spiciness of barbecue sauce with the sweetness of grape jelly. Yum!

2. Baked Chicken Meatballs

Take a break from traditional beef or pork meatballs by baking this lighter but still delicious version: tomato chicken meatballs.

3. Creamy Swedish Meatballs

Swedish meatballs are a classic! The creamy sauce makes these meatballs an ideal pairing with egg noodles.
