“Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry -- Meatballs are so hot right now so this is a Middle Eastern potato "meatball" in a beautiful, tasty and aromatic red curry sauce. It's glorious! I love to experiment with making meatball out of interesting ingredient combinations and the Simply Potato mashed potatoes were a perfect fit. The sweet potatoes can be subbed in also.”
8 filled pita halves
