recipe: banh mi bites


As you know I follow many bloggers, and always appreciate the wealth of information from the blogger community, here and there sharing the details with my readers. Being a San Franciscan, I must say we have the best Asian Kitchens, traditional or Asian infusion, and I swear every time I turn around, another one is popping up in the city, exciting me to try each and every one of them.

Anyway, one of my favorite bloggers here, had a recipe posted on her site I couldn’t pass up since it tapped into my Asian food cravings. Which happens on a daily basis, right around the lunch hour. This recipe I decided to try last night, except instead of using pork – which I don’t eat, I opted for Sweet Italian style chicken sausage from Trader Joe’s, adding my own touch to the very perfect recipe.

  • Meatballs
    • 1 pound ground pork
    • 1 bunch green onions, diced
