A month after all the Christmas dinner preps were starting, I decided to make Turkey and stuffing meatballs. A friend of ours and excellent traditional cook told me of this recipe and said they had been described as little Christmas bites- and she is dead right. Both my parents are Irish and no Christmas dinner was ever complete without a 'Ham' so I also added some bacon to my meatballs and served them with Cranberry sauce.
I rolled the meatballs around 1 o'clock and although you are supposed to put them back in the fridge to set for a while, I fried them in the pan straight away as I wanted them to have maximum cooking time.
4 hours later, I did the rest of the veg and have to apologise for the last picture as I started eating in hunger and eagerness, forgetting to get a picture first! So there is a bite out of a roastie and a meatball missing from my plate :$ oops. It was delicious mmmmm
