I had the opportunity to finally eat at this wonderful restaurant! I had been wanting to try this place for a while, and more so after reading how much chef @DustinValette had helped first responders & fire victims during those critical weeks. I was on my own that night since the hubs had a business dinner at Madrona, so I sat at the bar. The staff was super friendly, they even called my cell when a seat freed up there while I was at another spot grabbing a drink. The food was amazing! I did the chef’s tasting, mainly because I could decide what I wanted. Everything was flavorful!
I also met a nice woman who was seated next to me. We had a great conversation that evening, and without her knowing it, she actually helped me make some important decisions in my life. That’s what I love about Sonoma County, it has some pretty amazing people! So thank you @kantdance13, your friendship that night meant more than you know. Keep showering that adorable nephew of yours with lots and lots of love! ❤️❤️❤️
What are you bringing to friendsgiving?? 🦃🥗🥖🍷❤️ These mini turkey meatball appetizers are so easy to make and give guests options which is always great 🙌🏼 Ingredients for meatballs:
1 lb ground turkey meat
¾ cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
½ onion, minced
2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
Ingredients for sweet & sour sauce:
½ cup brown sugar
1 ½ tbsp flour
⅛ cup white distilled vinegar
1 ½ tbsp soy sauce
Ingredients for Swedish meatball sauce:
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
½ cup half and half
1 cup beef broth
1 ½ tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp mustard
Salt & pepper to taste
Parsley for garnish
For the meatballs, combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and form small sized meatballs. I used a cookie scooper to make sure they’re all even. Brown all of the meatballs in a skillet high sides with a tbsp of olive oil, you don’t have to fully cook them, they’ll finish cooking in the sauces.
In a small saucepan, add all of the ingredients for the sweet & sour meatballs. Let the sauce come to a boil, and turn it to a simmer. It will thicken after a few minutes. Then add in half of the meatballs, let them cook together on low for about 10 minutes.
In the pan you cooked the meatballs in, start the Swedish sauce. Melt the butter and add in the flour to create a roux. Next, add the beef broth, half & half, worcestershire sauce, mustard, and salt and pepper. Let this come to a boil, turn the heat to low and add in the remaining meatballs. Cook these for 10 minutes as well. That’s it! Serve with toothpicks for guests!
