Barbecue Meatballs

These really are so delicious, folks. I have been looking for the perfect meatball recipe for awhile now and have found it here!

Sweet and tangy. Great for parties and get-togethers. They are always a hit because they are so good and easy!

No leftovers! But just in case you do they’re delicious warmed up the next day and placed on a toasted sandwich bun with melted mozzarella on top. Yikes.

Will be making these for an office Christmas party coming up soon. DELICIOUS
