A sweet and spicy glaze makes these sweet heat meatballs a great appetizer for holiday parties, game nights, or just about any time you feel like having meatballs on a stick. We use frozen homestyle meatballs to make things easy so you can focus more on the eating part of this delicious appetizer.
Let me just say something here off the bat. I love meatballs. If there’s any kind of food in the world that causes someone’s brain to malfunction and start chanting its name in a frenzied mantra, it’s meatballs for me.
It started a very long time ago. Let’s fairy tale this. Once upon a time, I happened across a hole-in-the-wall restaurant that served spaghetti and meatballs. I ate it and I fell in love. And we lived hungrily ever after. The end.
Then came the invasion of the evil Ikea Swedish meatballs. Can I say yum? Now when I see meatball recipes all over Pinterest, it takes a huge amount of restraint not to start a meatball posting crusade and throw in the towel by renaming my blog to The Meatball Inc.
But today I yield. Because these meatballs are so glaze happy they wouldn’t take no for an answer. So here we have sweet heat meatballs. It has this background heat to it that’s just right. And it’s sweet. It’s meat-shaped balls on a stick. Hooray for great inventions!
And while you can opt to make your own meatballs, you can also get frozen ones to work with here. How easy is that? That gives you more time to work on that glaze.
Serve these babies at dinner parties, cookouts, or whatever function you have. It’s great for party food or just plain snacks!
