Meatballs are the perfect nibble to serve during the game — whether on toothpicks, sandwich rolls, or a pizza (yep, we said it). This recipe uses an easy meat blend and pairs it with a barbecue sauce made of ingredients you probably have stored in your pantry. 

Directions

For the meatballs

Combine the first 6 ingredients together in a bowl. Crumble the beef over the mixture and incorporate, careful not to overmix. Shape into 1-inch balls. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown meatballs in a little vegetable oil and  drain. Place in a 2 ½-quart baking dish.

For the sauce

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Combine all of the ingredients together in a bowl and pour over the meatballs in the baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 50-60 minutes or until the meatballs are no longer pink.
