Whenever I want to write about dinner recipes my dilemma is "should I go vegetarian? Should I do meat? If I do meat--what kind?" My husband said to write venison recipes---good idea---we'll save that for another time! Decisions, decisions.
Now you are able to have some fun. You want to make one of those best beef meatballs recipes? No problem. You are already half way there. Whilst your meat is browning, simply defrost the onions and then add them along with the other ingredients. You have the beginning of Chili con carne, a Beef and Noodle Casserole or a slow cooker italian meatballs Goulash.
The pie is made with very lean pork meatballs and potato. It can be served plain or with a fruit chutney or relish. My Meme always served it with a cheese and cracker plate and a raw veggie platter as a light meal after Mass. This could easily be served as a party dish or as a family meal with sides to compliment it. The slightly spicy and wonderfully savory flavor of this pie makes it a favorite any time of the year, but for Christmas Eve it is a must!
Often the actual foods seem passable, but they might cause your stomach to produce acid, which in turn creates acid reflux symptoms. Obviously, peppers are spicy and should be avoided, but chocolate may also cause your heartburn because they are often high in fat. Foods that contain italian meatballs such as pizza pies and spaghetti will almost constantly give you acid reflux if the person eating it is prone to acid-forming reflux.
