Have you made those meatball hors d’oeuvres in barbecue sauce and grape jelly? They are very easy to make in a slow cooker – and serve from it, too. Gotta love that!
I saw an old recipe for the meatballs recently, and it struck an idea for a sandwich. Wouldn’t these be fun for an afternoon of football on TV?
HH loves anything with barbecue sauce on it! (And, I love anything with slaw on it!)
It’s so easy. Get out your slow cooker and add a package of frozen meatballs, a bottle of barbecue sauce, and a small jar of grape jelly. Cook on low all day (6-8 hours) or start on high for an hour and turn to low for another three.
Don’t the meatballs look yummy? They are!
These meatballs would work on hoagie buns, but I love whole wheat pita pockets. The pocket holds as much sauce as you like.
Slather a little mayo on the inside of the bread before adding the meatballs. Top with your favorite slaw, and you’re done. Isn’t that the easiest sandwich that’s a tish more special than the norm?
In case you haven’t made these meatballs before, here’s a recipe for you to print.
- 20-ounce package of frozen meatballs
- 18-oz. bottle of barbecue sauce
- 11.5-oz. jar of grape jelly.(I like the all-fruit kind)
- Your favorite slaw, quantity to your liking
- 1 package of Pita bread
- Cook first three ingredients in slow cooker on low for 6-8 hour or on high for an hour, and then turn to low for another 3 hours.
- Cut pita rounds in half and slice each open carefully. Spread one side with mayonnaise.
- Load 4-5 meatballs inside and add sauce to your liking.
- Pile slaw inside pocket until full.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend ahead. Will you be watching football this weekend? Do you have a gang that would enjoy some game day sandwiches?
