This week, I’ve partnered up with some of my favorite fellow food bloggers to promote the “Food Blogger Winter Games”, a series of recipe posts from each blogger highlighting different countries cuisines ahead of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

The country I selected to cook from was Germany and yesterday I shared a delicious recipe for Pork & Sauerkraut Cabbage Rolls. Today, I’m sharing a new one pot recipe for German meatballs and potatoes. This is a great dinner recipe for all those fellow “meat and potato” lovers out there! And that creamy lemon caper sauce, O-M-G, I dare you not to drink it straight from the pan, it’s seriously so good!
