These Appetizer Meat Balls are made from scratch and don’t take as long to make as you might think. They also do not have bread crumbs in them so if you need to eat gluten free these work very well, although you need to be careful of the brand of dry onion soup used in case it has wheat in it. Most of the store bought meatballs have gluten in them as well as other fillers. I use a one inch cookie dough scoop so these all turn out the same size and I place them on a broiler pan so any grease can drip through. Although the sauce is simple, it is very good. I took these to our family reunion so I made the meatballs a day ahead of time and put them in a crock pot with the sauce to heat them through. I then kept the crock pot on warm for serving. Now, a few weeks later as I am writing this post the night before it is published I realize I never took a picture of the meatballs covered in their sauce…oops. Sorry about that, but if you are looking for a great appetizer for New Year’s Eve or the football playoffs, this is an easy and good recipe to use. I hope you enjoy it!
I hope your Christmas was wonderful and I wish you a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
