Meatballs are usually served with tomato sauce and pasta, in a bun with the addition of tomato sauce or as an addition to potato-based dishes.

I am curious how many of you have ever served meatballs in a soup.

It turns out that meatballs are less popular in this form, which really is a pity, because the broth you get from cooking meatballs in it tastes sensational.

I have already made soups with meatballs several times. The base of such a soup should be a selection of vegetables of your choice – you can change them from time to time and use what is accessible in the various seasons.

As for the meat, I personally like soups containing poultry. They are lighter and less intense in taste than those from meat such as pork.

Good to know when making soup with meatballs.

During the preparation of the meatballs, the meat can stick to your hands. I always have a bowl filled with cold water placed on the side and first I wet my hands in water and then pick up the meat. Repeat this before shaping each meatball.

I used cream without lactose because I have an intolerance to it. You can use standard cream, of course.

In my opinion, poultry meat will go best in a soup. If you do not have any, go for beef. Pork meat should be the least favourite one.
