I really love a good meatball recipe. I serve them as appetizers when we have appetizer night sometimes and often just pair them with pasta or mashed potatoes for a main course.
Whether you want a party meatball recipe or something that you can serve your family that is delicious and quick and easy to make, I have the perfect meatball recipe for you. These yummy meatballs only take about 15 minutes to get ready and then you cook them in the crock pot for about four hours. What could possibly be easier?
Meatball recipes are so different. Many have jellies and barbecue sauce while others have homemade sauces that are so yummy. This particular recipe has an amazing homemade glaze that has honey, soy sauce and ketchup and you simply won’t believe how good they taste.
These would be great served with some egg noodles or just have them to serve at your next party. They are very versatile and honestly, the recipe just couldn’t be easier to make. If you are like me, you love a good crock pot recipe.
Just take a look at these 25 fast and easy crock pot recipes that I collected. They let you put a wholesome dinner on the table even on your busiest days.
The glaze is really what sets these meatballs apart from others. The meatballs themselves don’t have bread crumbs or eggs like traditional meatballs. They are just balls of pure meat and the glaze makes them amazing.
If you really love trying new recipes then I highly recommend that you give this one a go. Your family is going to love this whether you serve them by themselves or top pasta or mashed potatoes with them. And be sure to check out this homemade blueberry pie as a great dessert idea.
