Swedish Feta Stuffed Meatballs

Last summer when our Swedish friends where here visiting, Sofie made the best dinners for us. I would be with the kids at soccer practice and walk into a delicious meals waiting for us. After having them here I really started to get the whole Sisterwife thing. I mean, if they are going to make dinner for me on crazy nights..I get it sister wives, I get it. 
When  Jones Creek Beef  asked me share a recipe using their ground beef I thought it was the perfect time to try out one of the delicious meals Sofie made while here.
In Swedish its called biffar, which I guess translate to steak, but when I think of steak I think of something entirely different, so I'm going to call these Swedish Feta Stuffed Meatballs
2 table spoons onion powder of 1/2 chopped yellow onion ( I used powder)
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
4-5 tablespoons bread crumbs (add more if it doesn't form well) 
salt/pepper/garlic powder 
feta cheese, I used one small container for the meatballs and the feta sauce I made to serve with it

Mix all the ingredients except the feta together in a large bowl. Then form the meat mixture into large meatballs, they will shrink down some. Once I had the size I wanted them to be I flattened them a bit in my hand so they looked like hamburgers, grabbed a big chunk of feta and pressed it into a meat, then formed a ball around the feta so the feta is in the middle. 

Then stick the meatballs in a pan on medium heat and turn gently every few minutes so they don't fall apart. Mine took about 20 minutes before they were cooked all the way through. 

Serve with a salad, potatoes and a yummy little feta dip which is just feta and sour cream mixed together. So good! The kids even asked for left overs for lunch the next day.

White Water Rafting!

White Water Rafting is one of those Colorado things Drew and I have been saying we are going to do for a decade now. But I can't to it while pregnant (that knocks of three summers) and its usually a half day adventure and I basically don't leave my kiddos for more than 1-2 hours the first year it seems like so that takes care of at least 1-2 more summers...but this summer I think is finally the year!
