With St. Patrick's Day on the horizon, you might have corned beef and cabbage on the mind. But March 9th is National Meatball Day! Meatballs are not uniquely Italian, and every culture seems to have their own recipe. Beef, veal and pork seem to be the most popular meats used, but you can also find chicken, fish and even vegan versions.
