Blog-checking lines: The June Daring Cooks’ challenge sure kept us rolling – meatballs, that is! Shelley from C Mom Cook and Ruth from The Crafts of Mommyhood challenged us to try meatballs from around the world and to create our own meatball meal celebrating a culture or cuisine of our own choice.
Meatballs are not something we eat very often, but certainly enjoy when we have them. For this challenge we had turkey meatballs, served with spicy Thai pickles and slices of mango on a bun. The meatballs were browned in a frying pan to give them a nice crisp sear and then finished in the oven. I love the mix of the sweetness of the mango, the spice of the pickles and the multitude of flavours from the meat itself.
