The meatballs were very easy to do. They were a bit dry when rolling. But they were perfect at the end. I used italian breadcrumbs. In the sauce I used red bell pepper and more. The sauce is too sweet for me and DH. But my son really liked these meatballs with the sauce. Thanks Blue Rose :) Made for PAC Spring 2012
Originally tagged this recipe so I'd have some meatballs to freeze, & in fact, that's where almost 30 of them ended up! The rest were served as the recipe calls for, with the great tasting BBQ sauce, & I'll definitely be keeping this recipe around to make again! Absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

The only problem with this recipe is now I have to make them for every family event. Great recipe!!! Had to do a 4X batch last time, but worth every minute. Super tasty, and different from convenetial meatball recipes.
These are fabulous! I made them for dinner tonight with your Corn Casserole and it was a great combo. The meatballs were super tender and flavorful. The only change I made was using red bell pepper not green. I think the breadcrumbs could be cut back to 1 cup without a problem. Thanks for the recipe!
I made this recipe last night and the meatballs were awesome! The only additon I made was I added pineapple chunks with their juice. I served them over wide egg noodles! Yummy! Thanks so much for the recipe! I will use it often!
I did these for dinner so made large meatballs using a home-made ranch mix as we don't have dry ranch here. These were really nice, the sauce was sweet & savoury at the same time and hubby enjoyed these as well. I especially love the idea of roasting the meatballs first so they don't break when simmered in the sauce. made for ZWT 4 - Zingo.
Very easy and good!!! I made mine just as written and served on French bread rolls, sprinkled with cheddar cheese. Made for ZWT4.
I took these to a 4th of July party and the overall reaction from the cooks was, they were ok but not spectacular. The kids liked the meatballs but some didn't like the sauce. I was surprised how dominant the green pepper flavor was - I was wanting to add something fruity and then something spicy to jazz them up - as they seem to go in the direction of a Hawaiaan meatball. I don't like to use store bought spice mixes because of the salt content, so I used a little fresh buttermilk and added thyme, celery seed, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I did add a little dry mustard to the sauce trying to give it a little more zip. I don't have a slow cooker so I cooked them on low on top of the stove for the 3 hours. I would use the meatball recipe again, but play with the sauce a bit. Thanks BlueRose for sharing your recipe, reviewed by a Chic Chef for ZWT 4 Zingo
