Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Dinner party, cocktail party or game day food, meatballs can be dressed up and taken anywhere.   No matter how you enjoy them, you will enjoy them.  My munchkin gets so excited to eat meatballs, she says "Mommy, I love meatballs.  They taste like candy".  Well these ones do for sure!

Sweet and sour meatball poppers can be served over a delicious scoop of jasmine rice with a side of snow peas for dinner, or with as a fabulous appetizer.  My husbands loves these meatballs poppers on Hawaiian rolls, they make delicious sliders.

The sweet and sour sauce is absorbed into the meatball as it cooks, creating an incredibly flavorful meatball, you certainly won't be able to eat just one!
