Salisbury Steak Meatballs and Sweet Potato Noodle Bowl

Salisbury Steak Meatballs with Sweet Potato Noodle Bowls

Today’s dinner – Salisbury Steak Meatballs and Sweet Potato Noodle Bowl. I must say that I was really nervous bringing this meal to the table. Can you guess why? I’ll tell you…it is REALLY similar to noodles…in fact, visually, you can’t tell the difference.

My family is used to me switching out ingredients…in fact, my son just told us that he was telling jokes about it at Bible study the other night. Do you like the muffin? When he says, “yes”…I say…it has kale in it! Sounds like me…

So, you can imagine why I was nervous. I don’t like to bring food to the table and apologize for it immediately. Like, just so you know, this isn’t noodles. Haha! So, I put it in front of them and wait…and watch their faces. There wasn’t a noticeable look on their faces tonight. My husband asked first, after he said how good it was. I told him it was sweet potatoes and he was surprised. Then I confessed my fear at putting the dish before them and not knowing what to say. 🙂

Our two older children both said that they thought it was noodles, and then it was crisp so they knew it wasn’t noodles…but they still liked it. I am relieved. Our littlest, he is so used to eating meals like this and hasn’t had regular noodles very often so he doesn’t say anything. He ate it up…as much as he does dinner. 🙂

Here is what I did:
