Tailgating with Armetale, Review, Recipe and Giveaway!

I received an Armetale Classic Medium Bowl for review. The opinions expressed here are 100% mine.

When I was asked to review an Armetale Classic Medium Bowl l I was delighted! I’ve been intrigued by these beautiful serving dishes for some time.  I love their sleek beautiful lines that are classic and contemporary at once. Equally appealing to me is the fact that these pieces are made from recycled metals. As a supporter of a clean and green lifestyle I love companies that are ingenious in re-using materials and turning them into practical items for every day use. And when these items are this beautiful they are truly a pleasure to use and display. What I leaned is that these pieces are extremely versatile and can be used for much more than just serving foods.


When my Armetale classic medium bowl arrived it was an instant favorite with everyone in the family.

Everyone oohed and aahed at it’s sleek and gorgeous lines and began throwing out ideas on how we could use it. Natasha suggested we fill it up with candy and place it on our coffee table for guests to enjoy. My mom and grandma have always had a bowl of candy out for all to enjoy and I love that she wants to keep that tradition going. Alexandra surprised me with a beautiful and delicious mango mousse for my birthday.


It was the perfect serving dish for the chocolate mousse I made for my hubby’s 50th birthday and I love how nicely it complimented our pewter cake serving platter which we received as a wedding gift 22 years ago!


I decided it’s a perfect serving dish for all kinds of wonderful salads, including my daughter’s fabulous rice salad.


One thing my hubby was particularly excited about was that you can cook with these pieces on the grill. Being the barbecue master he was anxious to give it try and cooked up a wonderful medley of vegetables.

Here are some things you should know about Armetale products:

  • Armetale metal is a unique, non-toxic aluminum-based alloy, making it ideal for prepping food, cooking and serving
  • Armetale metals do not rust, chip or break making them fabulous family heirloom pieces
  • Armetal pieces can go from freezer to oven to table to fridge.
  • Armetale pieces are NOT dishwasher safe and should be hand washed as you would any treasured kitchenware.

When I agreed to review a piece from Armetale I was issued a challenge: to come up with a tailgating recipe that would make use of my classic bowl.

My girls attend a French American school and though we have a fabulous soccer team, we do not have a football team or a student body large enough for tailgating parties.. Yep my girls are missing out no this fun all-american experience.  We do enjoy going to outdoor movies, however, and always bring along a fun treat for the night, so I figured the same rules would apply to a tailgating party when it comes to food — simple, delicious and finger friendly.

I decided meatballs would be a fabulous choice and was inspired to create these garlic and mushroom turkey meatballs. They are gluten free, super healthy and if I can say so myself, absolutely delicious!


MeatballsPrep1-600All you need are four simple ingredients: freshly ground turkey, mushrooms, lots of garlic and fresh parsley.
MeatballsPrep2.600Chop all your ingredients and toss in a bowl with the ground turkey.


My Wilton Armetale bowl was that perfect bowl to cook and serve my meatballs in, and because these bowls keep foods hot longer, you can enjoy them hot at your party. Simply cover them in foil, and if you want them steaming hot, wrap the bowl in a towel.

I hope you enjoy these meatballs as much as my family did. Use fun, game inspired toothpicks to serve them for a tasty mess-free treat.

As it turns out some of our good friends invited us to join them for their next football game and tailgating party and I can’t wait to share our meatballs with them.

  1. what a beautiful bowl! Would definitely be perfect for just about any dish!

  2. I had never heard of wrapping the bowl in a towel to keep food hot. What a fabulous idea! It’s much safer than using a chafing dish with an open flame right at little finger level.

    • My mom cooks her ham that way Crystal and it is insanely good! The towel keeps the food nice and hot and your fingers don’t get burned. The trick is to place the food in the towel while it is still hot.

  3. Gorgeous bowl and great way to dress up your service ware.

  4. What a neat bowl. I love that its almost futuristic looking. (Is my geek showing? LOL)

  5. I would definitely use the Grillware 1 Quart Saucepot. My husband grills all of the time and would love this.

  6. Those look so good. I love meatballs, they are one of my favorite party foods. These are turkey, so they are a little healthier for you, which makes them even better.

  7. I need one of these bowls!!

  8. Yummy! This looks so good!

  9. Wow, I like that it has so many ways of use. Very neat.

  10. Ooooh cool bowl! We don’t use plastic so this would be a great fit for us, plus it looks great too.

  11. I didn’t realize they were recycled metal. That’s so nice to know, and they’re really attractive too.

  12. My hubby does lots of cooking and I bet he would love one of those bowls. I’ll have to send him that link. The garlic and mushroom meatballs sound great too.

  13. Jennifer Hiles says:

  14. That’s a cute set especially the bowl.

  15. I also like the SCALLOP HANDLE BUFFET TRAY.

  16. So many wonderful collections — Reggae, Classic, Autumn, Boucle….Love them all 🙂

  17. There is nothing like classy dishes when entertaining and these look good. Thanks for the great review.
