Sweet & Spicy “Meat Balls” (Dairy Free, Gluten Free)

The intricate flavors of this sweet and spicy dish result in a culinary delight. You can add vegetables of your choice to this dish for a larger crowd or just stick to the straight forward recipe; either way you will love it. Best if served accompanied with a wild rice dish. These meatballs are made from Portabella mushrooms by the brand Franklin Farms available at many major supermarkets in the refrigerated section. I bought these meatball at Waldbaums. You can always go online and see which stores carry it. You will find a picture of the brand below.
