Pelmeni (Russian meat dumplings) is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods.

I’m not sure when you’d ever serve this dish outside of Christmas, but it’s so good that I think it’s worth making year-round.

The combination of beef and pork gives the sausage a really rich flavor, and the allspice and onion give it a nice savory kick.

The potato is my favorite part because it makes the sausage really moist and tender.

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, ground pork, allspice, onion, and potato.
  2. Shape mixture into small patties or sausages.
  3. Fry in a pan over medium heat until browned all over and cooked through.

Emergency Meatballs (Paleo, Gluten-Free)

Emergency Meatballs (Paleo, Gluten-Free)

These meatballs are always stashed away in my freezer for those nights when I don’t have time to cook.

They only require a few ingredients that I usually always have on hand, and they can be thrown into so many different dishes.

My personal favorite way to eat them is with some zucchini noodles and marinara sauce, but they would also be great in a soup or over some mashed potatoes.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a bowl, mix together ground beef, ground pork, garlic powder, parsley, and onion powder.
  3. Roll the mixture into balls (I like mine to be about golf ball size), and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cooked through.

German Applesauce Meatloaf

German Applesauce Meatloaf

The applesauce bakes in flavor with this simple and delicious meatloaf recipe.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, bread crumbs, ketchup, onion, and applesauce. Mix well.

Schnitzla - Polish Meatballs

Baked Salisbury Steak

Baked Salisbury Steak

These tender beef patties are smothered in a delicious gravy and baked to perfection.

I love using both ground beef and pork in this recipe because it gives the patties a ton of flavor.

Plus, it’s an easy way to stretch out your meat budget.

My favorite way to make this dish is to add a little bit of garlic and onion to the beef mixture.

I also like to top my steak with a slice of cheese during the last few minutes of baking.

And of course, no Salisbury steak is complete without a side of mashed potatoes.

Air Fryer Meatballs

Air Fryer Meatballs

After trying air fryer meatballs, I will never bake them in the oven again.

They come out so juicy and full of flavor, and they’re so much easier to make than traditional meatballs.

This recipe uses a combination of ground beef and ground pork, which gives the meatballs a really great flavor.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients until well combined.

  9. When meatballs are done, add them to the gravy and simmer for 10 minutes before serving over egg noodles.

Hot Dog Sausages

This meaty mash-up came about when I was trying to come up with a new way to use up some ground beef and ground pork that I had in my fridge.

It’s got beef, it’s got pork, it’s got bacon… and it’s all smothered in a delicious tomato soup and juice mixture.
