Zucchini Meatballs

So much flavor in these pan-fried meatballs that I served them just with multi grain rice and asparagus on the side. But go ahead and add spaghetti sauce, sweet and sour sauce or even barbecue sauce if you like.
 Combine all meatball ingredients

 for smallish meatballs, a scoop works well
brown meatballs in pan until cooked through

I like the idea of the scoop, I wondered how you got them all the same size.

I've been on the lookout for different ways to use zucchini right now (we get 3-4 each week in our CSA basket) These look wonderful, thanks for sharing

I bet these are really good. I can't wait to try them. My mother-in-law used to make a cornbread casserole with zucchini in it, and we all loved it. She would cook the hamburger meat. Cook some zucchini and onions until tender. Drain and put in the meat. Put in a skillet, add cheese, and the cornbread mix on top!

This is perfect. A friend of ours just brought us a big bag full of zucchini and I'm looking for ways to use it up.
