Delicious Bridal Shower Meatballs

Meatballs - everyone's favorite party food.  And if you like to swap out ground turkey for ground beef in many of your main dishes, you might want to try Italian Turkey Meatballs.  Even your non-Italian friends will love these lean meatballs filled with the flavors of fresh herbs, parmesan cheese, and seasoned bread crumbs.  Here are meatballs made from scratch - with a yummy blend of barbeque sauce and fresh pineapple preserves - and also a much quicker and no less delicious slow cooker meatball recipe below.  Only 3 ingredients and you're done.  Don't forget to include them at your next bridal shower, baby shower or just because.  I always lean on this simple recipe and it never fails to impress!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs
  • 2 pounds ground round
  • 2 cups dry bread crumbs (I always use Italian Style)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 T finely chopped parsley
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup barbeque sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup pineapple preserves
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium-size bowl, mix barbecue sauce and pineapple preserves together.
  3. In another bowl, combine meat, breadcrumbs, eggs, onions, salt, and parsley. Mix well and form into bite-size balls. Arrange the balls in a single layer in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour the barbecue sauce mixture evenly over the meatballs.
  4. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, until the meat is cooked.

Ultimate Party Meatballs

  • 2 pounds of frozen meatballs (again, I prefer Italian)
  • 1 16 oz. can of jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1 12 oz. bottle of Heinz Chili Sauce
Combine sauces in a large pan over medium-low heat and stir until smooth.  Add meatballs and cook 15 minutes or until meatballs are heated through.  So easy and they always come out perfect.
Don't Miss!
