Bar-B-Que Meatballs

"A friend of ours made these for us and my husband went wild. I have since made these for family gatherings and everyone always requests the recipe. My grandmother even requested the recipe to make for her church group, which was a big compliment for me. I like to serve them with garlic mashed potatoes and a salad."

  1. My mom made these for us and my husband and two boys (7yrs & 4ys) went crazy!!! Can't wait to make it myself. I loved them too!!! They even tasted great the next day!!! My mom served them over some yummy egg noodles it was delicious!!!
  2. This recipe is a favorite of mine from the 80's. The recipe was passed around my workplace at the time. Makes a great potluck meat dish!
  3. I had a bag full of frozen italian meatballs. I dumped them in a crockpot on low for 4 hours and poured the sauce over them. The sauce was fantastic. My husband loved it. I loved it. My 8 year old loved it. I will make this again very easy. Next time I will try making the meatballs. I am sure they will be great also
  4. My family LOVED the sauce.... even my little sister who is so picky at it all!!! I am so happy you posted this recipe!! it's a keeper for sure!!!
  5. I just tried the sauce with my own meatball recipe. I would call it BBQ sauce not sweet and sour. But it was very good. It made a lot of sauce. For my size family I will try to cut it down next time - and there will be a next time! :)


I'm married with a 12 year old son and an 8 year old daughter. Between sports and dance, we are always on the go. I collect cookbooks so I could never name my favorite one! In what spare time I actually have I enjoy reading, shopping, and being with friends and family. I love love cooking for a crowd. My secret dream job would be to own my own catering company. Maybe someday! The only pet peeve I have is people who are negative and try to bring you down with them. <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="">
