Everyday Menus: Alpine Meatballs


Alpine Meatballs

Alpine Meatballs

Linda Larsen
Meatballs are easy to make, and can be flavored to suit any type of cuisine. The meatballs in this recipe are flavored with celery leaves, Swiss cheese, nutmeg, onion, and allspice. They are extremely tender and very delicious.

If you don't want to make your own meatballs from scratch, you can substitute frozen precooked meatballs and add the celery leaves, Swiss cheese, and spices to the sauce. I often do this on nights when I'm just too tired to face a lot of cooking. You can also substitute your own precooked and frozen meatballs.

Serve this delicious, creamy casserole with Spinach Strawberry Salad, Two Onion Muffins, and Butter Pecan Turtle Cookies for dessert.

  • Alpine Meatballs
    Celery leaves provide a nice hint of freshness to these simple, tender meatballs. This casserole is very easy and so delicious. The Swiss cheese is the "alpine" in this recipe, but you can use any mild grating cheese.
  • Spinach Strawberry Salad
    If you can't find good fresh strawberries for this beautiful salad, just omit them, or substitute raspberries or blackberries.
  • Two Onion Muffins
    These tender muffins are very flavorful, and can be made ahead of time. They are best warm, though, so if you have made them ahead, warm them in the microwave or oven before serving.
  • Butter Pecan Turtle Cookies
    Crunchy, sweet, full of chocolate and pecans; what more could you want in a bar cookie?
