Sweet and Sour Meatballs


Sweet and Sour Meatballs Recipe

These meatballs are a football tailgate staple and incredibly delicious. One of the best parts of this recipe is that you can make the meatballs and sauce ahead of time and freeze them for up to a month! That is always a bonus when it comes to getting ready for a party! Place cooked meatballs and sauce in two separate zip-top plastic freezer bags and freeze. When it’s time to serve, simply reheat the sauce, dump in the frozen meatballs, and you’re done. Score big with these fan-pleasing sweet and sour meatballs! 😀

I don’t just make these sweet and sour meatballs during football season, though! We eat them on busy weeknights when we are taking a dish to a friend’s house or for potlucks. I promise if you show up with a batch of these flavorful meatballs, everyone is going to be cheering for you! They can’t resist the incredible flavor combination, and they aren’t hard for you to make either. 

Can I Use Ready-Made Meatballs Instead? 

Yes, if you would rather use ready-made meatballs instead of homemade meatballs, that’s fine. I will warn you that making homemade meatballs isn’t hard, and they taste so much better than anything you can buy in a bag. They are juicy, soft, and packed with flavor and nutrients too. So much healthier than processed meatballs. However, if you love the sauce and just don’t have the time, I get it. Use frozen meatballs, and you are sure to like them too. 

Can These be Made with Ground Turkey? 

Yes, using ground turkey is going to give you similar results to ground beef. You can switch out the ground beef and pork if you want for turkey or use a mixture of any. Sometimes you can find a ground turkey for much less expensive than ground beef, and no one really even knows the difference when they are eating them. It’s a huge win for my pocketbook, and you won’t be lacking texture or flavor. 

Actually, you could even use ground chicken if you wanted. They are easy to adjust, and whatever you go with is bound to taste great. Just follow the directions, and you’ll be in good shape.
