Meatballs that you’ll eat like gum balls! These luscious luvs have bursts of asiago cheese in them that’s an unexpected surprise. Then there’s a full canvas of fresh herbs that work together symphonically to create interesting new triggers of happiness on your palate. Then there’s the slight charring and cripies around the meatballs from the melting cheese that just bring joy to your chew!
Make sure you create your favorite dipping sauce for the meatballs~~I love a lemon herb labneh sauce or maybe a tzatziki, both of which will be in my new cookbook~~then you can never go wrong with a marinara dipping sauce! These meatballs will be fabulous for a sandwich, too~~go ahead get your boho brain working and make some magic! xoxo ~ally
