  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem and mince thyme.

    Halve potatoes lengthwise. Quarter if larger than a ping pong ball.

    Trim green beans, if necessary.

  2. 2

    Roast the Potatoes

    On one prepared baking sheet, add potatoes, 1 tsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, a pinch of pepper, and thyme. Massage oil, seasoning, and thyme into potatoes. Spread into an even layer.

    Roast in hot oven until potatoes begin to soften, 15-20 minutes.

    While potatoes roast, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Meatballs

    In a mixing bowl, combine panko and 2 Tbsp. water. Rest, 1 minute.

    After 1 minute, add ground pork, half the garlic salt (reserve remaining for green beans), and half the poultry seasoning (reserve remaining for sauce).

    Form mixture into 16 evenly-sized patties.

    On a clean work surface, place 1 tsp. cheese in center of each patty. Fold pork around cheese to form meatballs and seal shut.

    Place stuffed meatballs on second prepared baking sheet.

  4. 4

    Roast the Meatballs and Vegetables

    After 15-20 minutes, carefully remove potatoes from oven. Push potatoes to one side of sheet.

    On now-empty side of sheet, combine green beans, remaining garlic salt, and 1 tsp. olive oil. Sheet will be hot! Use a utensil.

    Roast both sheets in hot oven until potatoes are crispy, green beans are fork-tender, and meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 15-20 minutes.

    While meatballs and vegetables roast, continue recipe.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    In a microwave-safe bowl, combine apple jelly, honey, remaining poultry seasoning, and 2 tsp. water.

    Microwave until heated through, 30-60 seconds.
