March 9th is National Meatball Day, and we’ve got just the sandwich to celebrate this important day: meatballs with garlic, ginger, lemongrass and lots of other delicious flavors, quick pickled vegetables, Siracha mayo sauce, fresh cilantro, and toasted peanuts. And what’s even better is that most of these components can be made in advance.
We can’t let grilling season pass by without putting the meat mincer attachment to use! Perfect for freshly made burgers using whatever kind of meat you want. We’ve used chicken thighs to create a flavorful and juicy burger stuffed with feta cheese and fig jam. Then we broke out the blender attachment to quickly whip up an arugula walnut pesto to go along with them. And if you really want to go all out, well, the mixer does an excellent job making homemade hamburger buns.
Most everyone loves pizza. Meatloaf? Maybe not. But why meatballs and not meatloaf? Why stuffed and flavored hamburgers and not meatloaf? Perhaps it’s the name, or perhaps it’s the look of it. But take all the familiar flavors of pizza and incorporate it into the loaf, roll it up with pepperoni and cheese and top with sauce and more cheese, and hopefully this recipe will change your mind about the humble meatloaf.
