Chicken Dijon Meatballs

I don’t know why I’ve been doing more made-up recipes for the meatball challenge than established ones, but hey, it’s fun to improvise. We were really happy with these, especially for a first run.

Basil, Feta and Quinoa-Stuffed Chicken

I liked this recipe from Cooking Light quite a bit. I think it might be even better with sundried tomatoes instead of the cherry peppers.

Crock Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup

I never really thought about stuffed pepper soup as an idea until I had a version at Jean Bonnet Tavern, this place we usually stop for lunch between Ohio and home. Their version was homey and satisfying, and I think I captured some of the same magic here with my version.

Italian Wedding Soup

We were generally happy with this soup. I froze half of it (sans pasta) for another time and we still had plenty. The complexity of the broth here is the real selling point. Actual meatballs: not too shabby either. An ATK recipe.

Alton’s Swedish Meatballs

We really liked the actual meatballs here but weren’t super into the gravy. Felt like it was missing something.

Chicken Cordon Bleuballs

Let’s call this one a work in progress – we really liked them, but I could see two or three changes that would put these over the top into awesome territory. Among them:

*Add more cheese! More ham wouldn’t hurt but more cheese is a definite.

*Cook for less time – these were a bit dried out.

*Optional: these would be great with a bechamel or similar dipping sauce on the side.

Turkey Meatballs for a Crowd

These are one of my favorite things to bring to someone who could use a freezer/fridge meal (new mothers, family members grieving, etc.). This recipe is pretty similar, but I’ve streamlined it a bit so it’s easy to double or even triple for a crowd.
