Grilled Meatballs

Yes that heading is correct, I made grilled meatballs.  Had some ground beef and a hankering for meatballs during some pretty hot days and decided to give grilling meatballs a try.  It worked amazingly well and produced a great taste of the grill with the Italian meatball flavors which were great dressed up with some sauce and cheese.

It started with our standard meatball recipe but also included some fresh basil from the garden.  There was an egg in there too that is not seen.  After hand mixing this and forming the balls, I definitely had reservations and concerns about putting the somewhat delicate meatballs on the grill.  I decided to put them on the upper bun toaster shelf and made sure it was thoroughly oiled.

Just keep an eye on the meatballs and turn them a few times.  Some of the balls did sink into the grate a bit, but overall they held their form pretty well.  Sauce them and cheese them up and eat them right out of a bowl or throw them on a hoagie roll for an awesome meatball sub with summery grilled taste.
