Lynn’s Cocktail Meatball Recipe
Now that it is officially November the holidays are literally just around the corner, and that means lots of food! So I figured this was an appropriate time to share with you my recipe for my favorite cocktail meatballs.
I love all the good food I get to eat around the holidays, and I try not to regret it too much because it’s only once a year…right? Oh well, that’s what treadmills are for.
A few years ago I was asked to bring an appetizer to a holiday cocktail party and after agonizing over what to bring I decided meatballs would be perfect,I mean who doesn’t love a good meatball. So I was searching the internet for a good recipe and every one I found was either spicy (not my taste) or it contained grape jelly (not my thing either) or barbecue sauce (nope, I don’t like barbecue sauce). I guess you could say I’m kind of a picky eater.
Finally I came across this one and I have been using it ever since. They are so good and simple and I always go home with an empty crock pot.
You can either make your own meatball from scratch or do what I do and and buy your favorite frozen brand.
Place the meatballs in a crock pot (if frozen, no need to thaw or precook)
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
I usually use one and a half times these ingredients per frozen bag of meatballs (for2 bags of meatballs multiply recipe by three)
