Introduction

Meatballs are an undervalued dinner option, in our opinion. If you agree with us, you're going to love this entree. You can choose a generous portion of either salmon or ground beef and ground pork meatballs, which we layer over oven roasted broccoli and quinoa. All of this is drenched in a scratch-made honey garlic barbecue sauce that will have you licking your plate clean. Meatballs are an undervalued dinner option, in our opinion.
