Cocktail Meatballs

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by BelindaGA

These meatballs are really tasty and are so easy because you do not have to precook the meatballs. At parties, I serve them in a crockpot so they stay warm all evening, but they usually disappear before they can get cold! The meatballs can be made ahead of time and frozen. Just thaw, place in a pan, cover with sauce and bake.

These meatballs were so easy to fix. However, I did think the sauce was a wee bit sweet and a wee bit too thick. I think that next time I will reduce the sugar a bit and add some water to the ketchup.
