You know what would be an awesome dessert after a meal of these scrumptious meatballs? This blueberry pie! Have you made this yet? It’s so easy and oh so delicious. Anyway, back to the meatballs.
They’re made with chicken! That’s right – chicken – which is much healthier than beef and makes a delicious meatball.
