Prepare for fall with these braised lamb meatballs | Local News

It’s officially fall, so say goodbye to summer, wrap yourself in something cozy, and make some meatballs. Meatballs are like a warm hug. They’re unassuming, intimate and unfailingly comforting, just like that sweater you’re about to slip on.

Meatballs are also universally enjoyable. Most cuisines seem to have some version of a meatball, with “meat” being the variable term. The iterations are many and diverse, yet consistent: from the traditional meaty pairing of beef and pork, to fish concoctions such as Danish fiskefrikadeller or Brazilian bolinho de bacalhau, to meatless veggie dumplings made with lentils and beans. Falafel, anyone?
