Okay so this is a recipe that a friend told me about a couple years back then I ended up finding it on Pinterest not long after. So I want to make sure I give credit to i heart naptime for their amazing post on these incredible meatballs.
I started out making these meatballs for a one of the many holidays we used to celebrate at a bank I used to work at. It might have been the “Thank-you-sweet-baby-jesus-in-your-golden-diaper-it’s-Friday” holiday I couldn’t be sure. Anyway, I made these meatballs because everyone had already staked their claims in the other foods to make (I wanted to make a fruit pizza, dammit!) so I was stuck with meatballs. Okay, seriously, if you ever want to be creative and make something else for social gatherings then you should never make these meatballs. You make this and it’s game over. You will be making them for the rest of your life and your desire to make creative dishes will be a dream that slipped away, because nobody will ever let you make anything else ever again. And who wants to make more than one appetizer for a social event? Not me!
Everyone who has tried these meatballs loved them. Loved them. Yet it doesn’t matter how much they love them they refuse to make them on their own. Nope. I have to make them. Every. Single. Time. They’ve become the most requested dish that I make and although I should be flattered it makes me question just how good the dishes I actually put an effort into actually are.
Anyway, enough blabbering on about how you should stay far away from this recipe and yet you should also make this because you will be loved by all. I know confusing, right? Good. With just three simple ingredients you’re on your way to effortless, delicious meatballs!
Oh! One more thing before the recipe (if you haven’t gone to i heart naptime and gotten the recipe already), when you’re making these meatballs the recipe requires BBQ sauce. Any BBQ sauce will do but I’ve found that Sweet Baby Ray’s Cola Q gets the greatest amount of praise. If you’re feeling adventurous throw in some pineapple chunks at the last fifteen minutes of cooking to give it even more zest. Without further ado — the recipe:
