Despite the fact we raise our own beef I’m always looking for ways to stretch the meat.
I’m not gonna lie, the thought of being able to sneak in a few extra veggies also appealed to me. Unfortunately half of my kids subscribe to the notion that broccoli is bad, chicken nuggets are good, and ew, what’s that green thing on my plate? Are you trying to poison me?
So Calvin and Hobbes, right?
While I wasn’t able to sneak the extra veggies past them unnoticed they did enjoy dipping these in barbecue sauce.
Okay. So did I. Sigh.
With this meal ready in just 30 there’s no excuse not to torture your child with a little sneaky veggie meatball. With barbecue sauce, of course.
P.S. I’ve entered this recipe to the Mr. Food Search for the Ultimate Weeknight Meal Contest…now we wait. And eat chocolate while we wait cuz the waiting is the hardest part.
