Meatballs 8 Ways (Kenyan Food Bloggers Edition)

Meatball Monday anyone? So here’s a back story of how this series that I’ll be featuring every so often on the blog came about. A couple of weeks ago, I visited my bro’s school and we were discussing what type of meatballs he wants on his next visit. Our conversation went something like….

Brother Dearest: I miss mother’s real food

Me: (Surprised) kwani meatballs aren’t real food?

Brother Dearest: Not really, mum actually makes an effort in cooking

Me: You think meatballs don’t take effort?

Like anyone eating githeri daily with just a dash of beans and some extra protein from all the weevils should have an opinion lol. All he was craving was his mother’s maharagwe ya nazi and biryani which he claims takes time and effort. Long story short, he shall not be enjoying my meatballs anytime soon

Which brings me to this article right here. I read a lot of Kenyan blogs and it’s so interesting trying out all the different recipes they put out. Wondering how to make bomb ass meatballs? You’re spoilt for choice with these recipes, thanks to this top Kenyan food bloggers.
