BBQ Cola Meatballs

READY IN: 4hrs
Recipe by BLUE ROSE

Meatballs are roasted, then simmered in a rich barbeque sauce made with cola. These make a great potluck dish.

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
