If you love meatballs but hate the mess of pan-browning them, turn to the oven for a quick fix.
Shaped and baked, Italian Oven-fried Meatballs are ready in minutes. Spice up basic ground beef with Italian sausage, or give it an aromatic Middle Eastern spin with pine nuts and cinnamon (Kofte Meatballs). Ground turkey with sage and cranberries makes an all-American blend (Turkey-Sage Meatballs).
