When I was searching for a reader's recipe to feature, I was thinking Super Bowl food (as I will be for the rest of the week!) and came across a Super Bowl practice run in the Kitchen Goddess group on TeamSugar. Before the big day, LaylaCams wanted to test out her recipes and in this post she lists the entire menu complete with tons of great images. One of her delicious dishes is a meatball appetizer perfect for a party. The recipe was actually posted by audreystar and includes step by step instructional pictures. These meatballs look like they would make any party rock. Thanks for posting girls! To make the party meatballs at your Super Bowl party,

These meatballs are great for just about any occasion but since there will be lots of potluck Christmas parties coming up I thought I'd post these now. My hubby also loves these when he has the guys over to watch football. I got this recipe from a gal I work with but hers were for baked beans and I thought the sauce would be great with meatballs too. I was right. I haven't tried little smokie sausages yet but I am sure those would be great with this sauce too. If you want to try the baked beans recipe just disregard the meatballs and add 2 cans (16oz) baked beans drained and reduce the bbq sauce to 1/2 cup.
5 slices of Hickory bacon, crisply fried and crumbled (I use the microwave bacon)
1/2 green pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1/2 cup ketchup
1 1/2 bottles 18 oz. Hickory Smoked Barbeque Sauce
1/2 cup of brown sugar (packed)
1 bag of frozen meatballs
1 crock pot
Cut up the bacon, green pepper, onion and brown sugar and throw in the crock pot.
Add the mustard, ketchup and barbeque sauce to the crockpot.
Stir together mixture and turn crockpot on High until the brown sugar has melted.
Now you can add the frozen meatballs. Put enough in where each meatball is covered in sauce. I usually use about 1/2 - 3/4 bag. More meatballs can be added and heated up later if you run low.
After about 2 hrs on High your meatballs should be ready to serve.
