These Meatballs Look Like Porcupines!

My daughter was finishing up her part in acting in the school play. At the final curtain call, the cast had decided that they wanted to do a final dinner with all the participants and their families. It was just a way that they could show their support for one another, and for the parents that did so much to help make sure it was a success. The dinner of course was going to be a potluck, and I considered taking my normal sweet and sour meatballs. I was getting the ingredients together and thought, “I always make these…I want to try something different.”

I started looking around online for different versions of meatballs and I fell upon this one from Jaime Cooks It Up. They looked filling and tasty, and there were only four ingredients?! Okay! I made these at home in the original sized batch to make sure they were good…they were divine!

Then, when it came time for the party, I tripled the recipe. I cooked them as instructed and then tossed them in the crock pot and headed out they door. They were a huge hit among the crowd. I got to walk out with an empty dish and that’s always a satisfying feeling.
