BBQ Meatballs

This is a very good appetizer but we didn’t eat them as appetizers. We ate them as a meal and we both loved them. I know that you will too.

  1. I’d eat them as a meal too. I’d find meatballs as an appetizer a bit weird. They look delicious mind you.

  2. I’m loving this recipe!! (I love a lot of your recipes. . lol). This is one I will definitely have to try. I imagine it will taste REALLY good with some faux potato salad as a side dish.

    • I had it with cauliflower augratin and it was very good. I have never tried the faux potato salad but now that you mention it I probably would love it too. 🙂
