Outta the Park Meatballs

This mouthwatering recipe is from the makers of Outta the Park BBQ Sauce, an award-winning, all-natural, thick and tasty tomato-based barbecue sauce that's delicious with ribs, chicken, shrimp and more. It's also one of my favorite barbecue sauces, and a regular best-seller at the Carolina Sauce Company. If you're looking for a crowd-pleasing appetizer to serve for the big game this Sunday, Outta the Park Meatballs are a winner!

2 lbs. Ground Beef
1 lb. Ground Pork
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs*
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs, beaten
3 TBS Outta the Park BBQ Sauce (save the rest of the bottle for saucing the meatballs in a crockpot)
1/2 cup red onion, finely diced
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro

*Season plain bread crumbs with salt, pepper, parsley, garlic powder & onion powder

In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients, using your hands to mix thoroughly. Gather the mixture into a ball and then form into meatballs roughly 1" in diameter.
In a shallow bowl, combine extra breadcrumbs and Parmesan along with salt and pepper and dredge each meatball in the mix, coating thoroughly. Cook meatballs in frying pan over medium heat until done, or bake using mini-muffin pans. To bake, pierce each meatball through its center with a toothpick and suspend each meatball in the muffin cups, which will catch fat drippings. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until done, then remove toothpicks.

Place cooked meatballs in a warmed crockpot. Add 1 Bottle of Outta the Park BBQ Sauce to crockpot. Serve hot and enjoy!

Zestfully yours,
