I’m not going to lie, this is my favorite recipe from Dr. Laura Brenner of Studholme Chiropractic! It’s so good that I gently prod her every December to bring it to our holiday pot-luck. If you’re looking to fight the chill of winter, putting these tasty meatballs in your tummy is a great way to warm up from the inside out! They’re also easy to make and transport, so they’re perfect to take to holiday pot-luck parties. We highly recommend making a double batch, because you’re definitely going to be craving them again the next day.
