This was actually the tastiest pasta/meatballs I have ever made. I don't know why Pioneer Woman isn't a religion. I would praise like there was no tomorrow. I would follow her ways and pray that her humble spirit guides my fingers and senses while experimenting with every type of indulging deliciousness she provides. Everything that I have made from her website, I mean EVERYTHING, has been delicious. Do it. Try it. Grow some chest hair and just make these meatballs. They require zero effort. You can make them ahead and freeze them later. I usually end up making a huge batch and freezing half because they are that ridiculous. After one bite, you will be in your chair, laughing a big burly laugh, with chest hair and all, thinking you're a better cook than your coworkers. Go ahead, scoff at them.

Crispy boyfriend really enjoyed this meal sandwiched between two King's Hawaiian rolls. He had never had King's Hawaiian anything before. He, evidently, hasn't lived. I added red pepper to the meatballs, I like the spicies. We also drizzled a bit of olive oil on the rolls and heated them under the broiler for a bit. It provided a tasty crispiness.

P Dub's Mini Meatballs
Adapted from Pioneer Woman

1 lbs ground beef
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 clove of garlic
1/2 tsp salt
shake of pepper
1 egg
1/2 a small onion
olive oil for frying
slider rolls

Mix all ingredients together, leaving out the olive oil and onions. Roll into mini meatballs. You can freeze them at this point or go straight to cooking. Dice the onion and sauté. Brown the meatballs in the pan with onions. Add your favorite tomato sauce, I chose tomato and basil and added red pepper flakes. Place the meatballs on the rolls with a little sauce. Serve warm.

  1. Seeing your food makes me miss you even more. And I am FLABBERGASTED that Crispy Boyfriend has never had King's Hawaiian bread before. He must have had a sad upbringing.
