Chicken Apple Meatballs with Bourbon Sauce

We're not here to sell anything.
Nor are we here to tell you what to eat.

OK -- maybe take that last part back. We are totally here to tell you what to eat. And these meatballs are it.

Tender. Savory. And Bourbon!
What more do you need to hear?

I could sell you on the fact that grated apples add both moisture and a bit of flavor to the meatballs, ensuring they aren't dry.

If I tell you they are brushed with butter and baked, does that make them additionally tempting?

AND they have cheese in them!  Cheese, people. Delicious Parmesan cheese.

What if I told you they keep nicely in a crockpot and are perfect for parties? Like your SuperBowl party?

Still not convinced?
Wow. I'm not sure we can be friends.

After all, I could eat a whole batch of these by myself.  And maybe I will.

Best of Burp! Top 5 Posts of 2014

It's become a tradition for me to sit down for an hour or two, after the new year dawns, and glance through posts from the last year.  It's a good way to review where we've been and start to think about where we'll go in the new year.

This year was tough. We were busy with our new business, and there were times when our posts were few and far between.  But, as I looked over posts from the last year, I'm both amazed and grateful to see how many of you kept on coming back to see what we were up to.

So, as I lift my glass to 2015, I also lift my glass to YOU, readers. Thank you for sticking with us, sharing your ideas, and making Burp! what it is!
