Meatballs That Feel Modern
Swedish meatballs have been regulars on the cocktail-party circuit since the 1960s for good reason: They can be eaten with one hand, are just mellow enough to taste great with many other snacks and are easy to make in big quantities. Plus—Super Bowl bonus!—unlike wings, they're fairly mess-free. This freshened-up recipe combines chicken-breast meat with Granny Smith apple and some herbs and spices; then, you serve the cooked meatballs with a glaze made of honey, balsamic vinegar and maple syrup.
