I swear stuffing cheese into ANYTHING immediately makes said thing exponentially better.

Which is precisely why I decided to stuff brie into these chicken apple and sage meatballs. It’s like a surprise after you bite into it. You think you’re just having a regular meatball but then all of a sudden, this cheesy liquid gold comes flowing out. I know that sounds kind of gross but I promise you the flavor combo in these meatballs were simply made for each other.

I’ve actually been having an extremely difficult time thinking of content for Fall. I don’t know what it is this year but I think I’m a little burned out and in a rut. I get a lot of inspiration from my travels and this year I haven’t traveled much because of using all my PTO on the new house and just the new house in general.

It also feels as if every single pumpkin recipe I think of…someone has already done. I know that there aren’t ‘original’ recipes anymore because there’s just so many recipes out there in general. I guess it’s fine and I’m thinking too much into it, but I do like being slightly different and playing with different flavors. It’s what I find joyous about cooking. The trial and errors.

These look and sound delicious! Do you serve them as appetizers? Or would you have a suggestion on how to serve them as a main dish?

Yes, we served them as an appetizer but we also ate them with pasta one night and marinara sauce! Ohhh..vodka sauce or another cream sauce would be just as delicious!
