Meatballs are typically made with ground meat mixed with other ingredients like vegetables, seasonings, and binders. As a health-conscious meat lover, I enjoy making meatballs with ground chicken because the meat tends to be leaner.

Binders, which help bind the ingredients together, could be eggs, breadcrumbs, oatmeal, or flour. In my recipe, I replaced the eggs with milk. The resulting meatballs were delicious!
