‘Wedding’ Meatballs

One of my family’s favorite meals is my parents’ ‘Wedding’ Meatballs. As the story goes, my grandparents worked day in and day out making hundreds of ‘Wedding’ Meatballs for my parents’ wedding and they were a hit. EVERYONE loved them. The recipe was requested and it shocked people just how easy it was.

My grandma even has requests for these meatballs still to this day. They really are that good. I think they are even better the next day for lunch!

Of course, back then my grandparents had to hand roll the meatballs, but today you can grab a bag of precooked meatballs and voila, you’ve cut the meal time down to 20 minutes.

What you need:

Bag of meatballs (I always buy and make a large bag and have the leftovers for lunch the next day)
Small jar Apricot Preserves
1/2 cup BBQ sauce

Directions:

Cook meatballs according to package (oven directions)
Mix apricot preserves and BBQ sauce in small bowl; set aside
During last 10-15 minutes take meatballs out of the oven and pour sauce mixture on top, making sure to get all of the meatballs covered and coated.
Place back in oven for 10-15 more minutes or until golden brown

Super easy and super yummy!
