Dream Dinners Mexi-Beef Meatballs
Originally uploaded by Foodmomiac.
Yet another gnarly dinner, courtesy of Dream Dinners. Tonight was Mexi-Beef Meatballs. The name is somewhat of a misnomer. Yes, these could have been shaped into meatballs. Another option presented on the instructions was shaping the mixture into a meatloaf. I chose another option all together, and instead molded the beef mixture into a muffin tin, creating 12 muffin-sized meatloaves.
The mixture (a combination of bbq sauce, rice, cheese, corn and meat) was baked for 15 minutes, topped with sauce (salsa, bbq sauce and other junk) and baked for another 10-15 minutes. The meat part was mediocre. The sauce was horrid; cloying is a good adjective. Nauseating is another.
Dylan was amused by the muffin shape until she tasted the damn things. I got her to eat a little bit by scraping off the sauce and letting her drown the meat with sour cream and grated cheese.
I was also helped out by the sour cream/cheese trick. Mostly, I just ate avocado. That's what Max ate too. Luckily, he didn't have to eat it with a chunk of nasty Mexi ball.
Does anyone know if I can donate frozen meals to charity?
