Oh Saturday, how fast you come…
It feels like last Saturday was just yesterday… Y’all know Saturdays are special right, it’s the only day of the week that we get to spend time together as a family. Being the only “free” day, I really don’t want to send all day in the kitchen making lunch.
I’m going to celebrate this weekend with the new progresso recipe starters. I often don’t use pre-made sauces but I had to jump in and try this new line of sauces for myself to see what all the buzz is about. This new line of recipe starters from Progresso is supposed to save you time in your meal planning, you can prepare a home cooked dish every night of the week in 30 minutes or less. Easy to use, you only need to add a few ingredients to create delicious dishes in no time!
I decided to try the Creamy Roasted Garlic flavor, the recipe on the pouch is for skillet chicken but I wanted to make meatballs, so I did! I baked the meatballs like I usually do, then poured the pouch of cream right on the meatballs 3 minutes before taking them out of the oven. The flavor of the cream is very vibrant and well seasoned so it gave the meatballs that extra kick. They taste amazing! Kinda like Swedish meatballs with an Italian twist.
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1 pouch of progresso creamy roasted garlic recipe starter
- In a medium bowl, combine the egg, ground meat, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, and cilantro. You can use a wooden spoon or your hand, mix until well combined. Using an ice-cream scooper of your hands roll the meat into 1-2 inch balls.
Arrange 1 inch apart in a 13x9 pan or cookie sheet. Bake for 20-5 minutes or until the meatballs are slightly browned. pour the entire progresso sauce on the meatballs and leave for another 2 minutes. Remove from oven and serve warm.

So you liked the sauce? I see those all the time in the store, but have never purchased one. These meatballs look super yummy! I just may have to pick some of this sauce up. Perfect appetizers or dinner.

Hi, Layla! I agree that it’s a great idea to serve meatballs like this with a cocktail stick and some creamy sauce. I would definitely be hovering around that plate at your party! 🙂
Yes, my daughter loves it this way and munches one right after the other!

This looks super awesome Layla! I’ve never put a creamy sauce on meatballs, I always use marinara. I really like the idea of these recipe starters. Sometimes you just don’t have all day to simmer an amazing sauce, you know? Git er done. 🙂
