Congrats to SmallKitchCara on the tikka masala meatballs! I've made the sauce twice since she posted it. More detailed (wildly enthusiastic) comments are posted on the recipe itself. I plan to test freeze a batch and if it's a success, will make quadruple batches to freeze. It's the best!! ;o)

EP - are there two better syllables? It's an honor to be in such great company. Thank you so much.

Wow, just coming up for air after a crazy day at the office - thank you so much for the EP, team food52! I'm honored to be in such great company, and congrats to the mouthwatering finalists!

This is from your friendly editors at Food52.

Just two recipes still up for testing, Nonna's Meatballs and Lion's Head Meatballs.

I'm happy to test Lulu Kabobs , I think they are still available. (Football is still a ball, even though it's not a sphere, so egg shaped Lulu Kabobs should still be considered meatballs!)


about 4 years ago AppleAnnie

Oh, oh--Lulu kabobs are not available, how about No More turkey leftovers?


about 4 years ago There'sAlwaysPie

I'll take the Lulu Kabobs - sounds like dinner tonight for my household!

Congrats to the already tested EPs!! I am not sure how much cook-time I have this weekend so am resisting testing (though I love doing it ...)

I'd like to try Stewed Pork Meatballs and Escarole with Crisped Shiitakes, please.


about 4 years ago monkeymom

Hope you enjoy them SallyCan. Napa cabbage is much easier to find and I highly recommend it if you can't find escarole or don't dig bitter greens.

I would love to try "Oh No You Didn't" - "Yes I Did" Meatballs, please. Thanks!

I'll take the Pearl balls please.

Knock-off Leon Moroccan Meatballs please.


almost 4 years ago cheryl

Thanks, I think they are so wonderful it does them an injustice to call them knock-off, but credit where credit is due.
