Operation Popcorn, April Fool’s

20160421_174222   This month Hey Popcorn Guy dropped of the flavor for this month’s challenge and it’s no April fool’s!  Honey Mustard is the flavor this month.  My daughter Morgan came to visit with our new granddaughter Willow for a few days and so we were throwing out ideas as to how to utilize the honey mustard popcorn in a recipe and Honey Mustard Meatballs was the winner.  So this month’s challenge was made by Morgan Kubash, and they were tasty.  Served alongside mashed potatoes, oriental style veggies, it was what’s for dinner! Honey Mustard Meatballs 3 cups Hey Popcorn Guy Honey Mustard Popcorn 10 Ritz Crackers 1 pound hamburger ½ medium onion, chopped 1 Tablespoon Honey Mustard   Pulse together honey mustard popcorn, Ritz crackers and medium onion together in a food processor, pulse until the consistency of bread crumbs. Mix into the hamburger, with the honey mustard, just until incorporated.  Form into small meatballs, place on a foil lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for approximately 30 minutes.  Serve with honey mustard cream sauce.   Honey Mustard Cream Sauce   4 Tablespoons butter 4 Tablespoons flour 3 cups milk 4 Tablespoons Honey Mustard ¼ teaspoon season salt Pinch of black pepper 1 teaspoon dill   Place butter in a pan to melt.  Once the butter is melted, add flour and whisk into butter and cook for approximately one minute.  Add milk and continue to whisk until thickens.  Add honey mustard, salt, black pepper and dill.
