Pork, Apple & Cheddar Meatballs in Creamy Mustard Sauce

Pork, Apple and Cheddar Meatballs in Creamy Mustard Sauce // Amy Elizabeth

Is anyone else sick of the stormy weather we've been having? I know it's terribly British to speak about the weather, but it feels like it just takes over at this time of year. It's so grim outside that all I want to do is eat comfort food and hibernate. Battling the wind and rain to even go for a cosy drink at the local pub feels like an ordeal, which makes me feel very anti-social. Of course, the solution to being anti-social in this instance is to invite others round to your house for an evening of board games, good food and plenty of wine. That way, you don't have to go outside in the rain, and you still get to see your friends. It's really a win-win. 

A dish like these meatballs is perfect for a cosy evening in, whether it's for two people or twenty (although I'd think twice about catering for twenty people, if I were you...). Mixing up the meatballs is oddly satisfying, and the combination of the sharp cheddar and the sweet apple is a subtle but very pleasing flavour. You can serve them anyway you want, but at this time of year I think they're probably best with piles of creamy mashed potatoes, some steamed greens and a creamy mustard sauce. All you need to do is pop on your slippers, and you'll feel warmer than you ever have done before - even if it is hailing outside...
