Meatball Bread Bowl

I’ve teamed up again with one of my favorites @theverygoodbutchers to make these Meatball Bread Bowls for #NationalMeatballDay using their delicious MMM Meatballs.

Their MMM Meatballs not only have great texture and flavor, they are Gluten Free, Soy Free and packed with over 17 Grams of Protein!

The Very Good Butchers are a plant-based butcher that offers a wide range of products, including plant-based meats, butcher boxes and cheeses. They believe in butchering beans, not animals. The bean butchers have created a line of insanely delicious plant-based food that’s “Very Good” for people, animals, and the planet.

Their products are top notch. You can taste the quality. They seriously take your dish to that next level! I'm a huge fan, order yours and one bite in, you'll see why!
