Celebrating National Meatball Day

Tomorrow is National Meatball Day, and to commemorate I wanted to post something really delicious, and incredibly ironic. These meatless meatballs are both.

That's right, we're going to celebrate National Meatball Day with a meat-free version that will have your guests wondering if they heard you correctly. Thanks to the magic of mushrooms, these really are amazing, and garner rave reviews from our vegetarian friends...okay, friend, but still. You can follow this link to read the original post and get the ingredient amounts. Enjoy!

These should be called mushballs. Vegetarians ruin everything.

When I first read the description I thought you said thanks to magic mushrooms. I'm sure this will still be delicious, but it probably won't be as awesome as I had initially thought.

I have to avoid Parmesan because of a restricted diet. What would be a good non-aged-cheese substitute in this recipe?

put in some dried porcini (maybe blended with a blender or a spice/coffee grinder) for a smokey and more meat like taste :)
