Can you buy those tiny meatballs for Italian Wedding soup?

I really like Italian Wedding soup & would love to make some, however, I was wondering if you can buy this mini meatballs that go in it or if I really have to make them.

I have never seen them in the store (not that I've looked very hard), but it would be much more convenient if I could just purchase them pre-made.

Not to mention, while my family loves my meatballs, I'm just not a fan of homemade meatballs, even mine. Strange, I know, but it just reminds me too much of meatloaf, which makes me gag!

I've only seen the small meatballs you would use for an appetizer. I have used them in my Italian Wedding Soup before. I cut them in half. Now I just make a bunch of small meatballs whenever I make regular meatballs and freeze them in a baggie. That way, I only have to make them about once every 2 months.

Is Giant Eagle a store or a brand name?

Giant Eagle is a grocery chain that I think is only in Western PA and Ohio (maybe just eastern Ohio). The small meatballs are manufactured under their own brand. I do think I have seen other brands though. They are in the freezer section usually near the frozen sauce, garlic bread, frozen pasta and larger meatballs.

I use them all the time for wedding soup.

Thanks. I'm in Western New York. Our main grocery store is Wegmans. They carry a lot of different things, so I'll have to check it out.

If you have a Smart & Final near you, they sell a half ounce meatball that might work.

I have made them by hand before. I just made a huge amount, froze them on cookie sheets then transferred the yummy little bundles to a Zip-Loc for storage and would pop a few into the pot of soup as I cooked it.

Lately I have been over the moon over Giadi De Laurentiis' meatball recipe from the following link. I am always on the lookout for a more perfect recipe and this one is just amazing. The only change I made was I don't put the cheese in the middle, it adds way too many calories.

We buy ours at a small, local, Italian food store. DO you have something like that?

My MIL cuts regular sized meatballs either in half or quarters.

We do, so I may have to try that.

They might be a little big, but IKEA sells good, smallish meatballs (and warm cinnamon buns!)
