Reader's Recipe: Super Bowl Meatballs

Reader's Recipe: Super Bowl Meatballs

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.

everyone has certain foods they don't like but to make these for other parties is not out of the question and they would not be sitting there uneaten. believe me. now if someone were to bring liver and onions i could see the issue. but not with these.

Alot of people dont like meatballs. I would not suggest serving meatballs at just any party. At Super Bowl parties, it probably would be ok.

This looks good. When I make crockpot meatballs, I just throw premade, frozen homestyle meatballs in with equal parts beef gravy and mushroom gravy to cover. (Usually about 3 cans of gravy total). Let cook for about 2 hours total before serving. I usually use an entire bag, as my husband loves hot meatball sandwiches the next day.
