Who doesn't love meatballs?? They are simply the best, easiest and yummiest appetizer around.
Versatility is the key here and these meatballs are perfect. They make a great appetizer or with the addition of some cooked rice they become an instant lunch. What's not to love?
My kids ask for these about once every couple weeks and they will eat as many as I will allow. I've also found that when I use them as a meal, broccoli is the veggie of choice to go with.
30 frozen meatballs (approx. 1 oz. each)
1 cup BBQ sauce (use your fave)
1/2 cup Sweet & Sour sauce
Cooked white rice (optional)
In a large skillet, heat frozen meatballs over medium heat until mostly thawed. Add sauces; stir to coat meatballs. Cover. Cook over medium heat until heated through.
For an easy main dish, serve over cooked rice.
As you can see from my picture, the last time I served these, I dressed them up with green onions and sesame seeds. It made them look pretty and gave them just a little something extra special.
The crockpot is another excellent way to prepare these. Put the frozen meatballs and the sauces in a 3-4 quart crockpot and cook on low until 3-4 hours. This way is especially good for buffet style dining.
