Old fashioned Baking Powder Meatballs
is what’s on the menu today!
Do you love old, hand me down recipes like me? These Baking Powder Meatballs was my Grandma Hoff’s recipe. They were a favorite meal of her’s. She was such a good cook and such a happy person. Also wearing a dress, singing, and a smile on her face. She could make any meal a party, with her laughter. I loved hearing her play the piano and sing, she was a beautiful lady inside and out!
I haven’t made these meatballs in a while, but going through my old recipes last week I pulled this one out and remembered how much I loved them. They were just as good as I remembered. My husband even had seconds and that’s something he doesn’t do often. Don’t let the name fool you. When I told my daughter what we were having she said, baking powder? But that’s just what they were called. The baking powder works as a meat tenderizer and makes these meatballs oh so yummy!
As you can see I serve these baking powder meatballs over mashed potatoes, but I have also served them over wide noodles.
Add a salad or a vegetable and you have a delicious meal. Grandma would be proud!
