My toddler loves pasta and seem to can’t get enough of them. He loves it so much, he could eat pasta everyday and would not get sick of it. However, he tends to be choosy when it comes to the protein intakes. He doesn’t like to eat chicken, beef or pork. He likes egg, but the protein intake is not complete without meat or poultry. So I have to do everything in my power and ability to somehow feed him the protein without him realizing or knowing it. One of his protein meals is the meatballs served with skewers. Eating the meatball in skewer makes him forget that he actually eating the meat, because the way of eating them is interesting and adventurous.

I do have an important lesson to learn while making both the patties and meatballs though. Always give either your burger patties or meatballs a good squeeze while shaping them or otherwise they will break. If you are not sure, just place them in the fridge for at least half an hour, so they can retain their shape.

So, here is the picture of my burger patties. If you want to serve them with burger buns, you could make them larger to suit your buns.

I served my Skewer Meatballs with my homemade pasta sauce. If you do want to serve them with pasta sauce, you could heat the pasta sauce together with the meatballs, so that the sauce could be absorbed by the meatballs. They will taste so much better.
