How about Swedish meatballs? Make a sauce for them by melting butter, whisking in an equal amount of flour, add beef broth and bring to a boil, add some dill, some pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg. When the sauce thickens, take off the heat and stir in some sour cream. Pour over the meatballs and serve. I love these with egg noodles and green beans on the side.
One of my "darling" children left the big bag of meatballs out after dinner instead of putting them back in the freezer. So, I had like 3 lbs of meatballs to use up. One of the boys refuses to eat meatballs (he has texture issues). So, I crumbled them up and used them as the meat on pizzas. No one knew. But, apparently, those were some really good pizzas.
I too was going to suggest it as a pizza topping alternative be it sliced in rounds instead of pepperoni or more like ground beef crumbled to make a cheeseburger pizza or turn them into a calzone/pizza pocket using premade crescent roll dough, tomato sauce and shredded cheese.
Crumble them into casseroles, cheeseburger/meatball or italian wedding soup, scrambled eggs/quiche, make a meat sauce for pasta, meatball skewers - instead of souvlaki (or spiedies...thinking of Darlene here ) and lastly slice into strips and stir fry with veggies and long pasta.
