Sweet and Tangy Meatballs

Hello, I’m back!   Too long to explain why.  So, without delay, here’s one of the recipes I promised to publish next.  The easy, super speedy tangy meatballs you can serve at your next party.   Just add all the ingredients in a pot and cook them over medium heat until the sauce thickens.  You have more time to take care of the last details of your party rather than spending time in the kitchen until the guests arrived.


So many meatballs with pretty much the same flavors are out there, so I decided to give this very common appetizer a new flavor.  I hope you give this recipe a try.  It’s fast (if you cook them over the stove), simple and something different.  I have and I would make them again simply because my children love this particular flavor.  🙂


  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 can (6 oz.) pineapple juice
  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • 3 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 3 tablespoons mustard
  • 4 tablespoons  mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 20-25 pieces prepared meatballs (beef, turkey, or chicken)

Combine and whisk the first seven ingredients in a medium pot until well incorporated.  Add the meatballs and cook over medium heat until the sauce thickens.  Serve warm.

Note:  You can also place them in a slow cooker and cook them in low setting until the sauce thickens.   You’ll have a warm appetizer ready for your guests.  My children had these meatballs for dinner and they loved them.  My oldest said that they were yummy and flavorful and ate more meatballs than usual.    Bon Appetit! 🙂
