National Popcorn Day is definitely one worth celebrating. Whether you make yours on the stovetop or in the microwave, there's no reason for that bowl of hot, crunchy popcorn to go unadorned.

These mini stuffed lamb meatballs are just about everything you could ask for in a one-bite party snack: meaty, cheesy, tangy, savory and sweet all at the same time.
