A note about serious food allergies

Cheese and pork come together for some flavorful meatballs, tender, moist, and mighty good. But the side here competes with the main with fresh cauliflower and sweet apple roasted together into tantalizing flavor.(A bit of ancho cinnamon rub helps the proceedings along.) This meal is all about bringing good things together.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut cauliflower into 1” pieces.

    Quarter apple and remove core. Cut into 1/2" slices.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

  2. 2

    Form the Meatballs

    In a mixing bowl, combine panko with 2 Tbsp. water. Set aside, 1 minute.

    After 1 minute, add ground pork, cheese, garlic salt, and a pinch of pepper to mixing bowl with panko and stir to combine. Form into eight equally-sized meatballs.

  3. 3

    Cook the Meatballs

    Spray a medium non-stick pan with cooking spray and place over medium heat.

    Add meatballs to hot pan. Roll occasionally until browned all over and meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 10-14 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While meatballs cook, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Cook the Cauliflower and Apple
