Okay, here we are; the first 5 Star Makeover event of the year! As you can see from the images above, this month’s challenge is meatballs.
I have to say, I am a lover of all meatballs, from all over the world. Whether they are served Italian style atop spaghetti with red sauce, lamb meatballs with Mediterranean spices, Morrocan, Swedish, or Thai (like the ones I made here).
Among my favorites are the pescetarian versions made from fish and shellfish. Even vegetarian meatballs are okay with me too; especially if we count arancini in the meatball category.
There so many directions to go with this challenge. It really left the gates wide open for creativity.
I decided to go with an appetizer presentation, and thought it would be nice to make bison star of the ball.
Bison is much lower in fat, calories, and cholesterol than beef. Grass-fed, bison is rich in vitamins, minerals, and flavor! January resolutions are well underway, and if you are looking for new ways to celebrate healthier eating, swapping out some bison in place of beef in your favorite recipes is one small change that may help you along the way.
So here we go: Bison Meatballs with Pickled Red Onions, Avocado Relish, and Spicy Aji Amarillo Sauce.
