Maple Meatballs

Here is a great recipe for maple meatballs that could be used as a main dish or appetizer. It’s also a great dish for football season. This recipe comes from Stephanie Ashcrafts cookbook 101 Things to Do with Meatballs. Stephanie is the one who also did the books 101 Things to Do With a Cake Mix. She shared this recipe a while back when she was on a local TV show called Studio 5. This recipe is yummy and easy. When I make this for a main dish recipe I make 1 1/2 recipes of the sauce and serve it over rice. YUM!

  15. This recipe for Maple Meatballs sounds so delicious I wan to cook them for a coed baby shower event in a week. For the sake of time, can anyone recommend a specific brand of frozen meatballs in lieu of homemade?

  17. I made these today and they were a hit with the family. I am making more of these for a luncheon at the office and I was wondering if I should reheat in a crock pot or in the microwave? I read where it is not advisable to reheat in a crock pot due to temperatures, bacteria, etc… Any one have advice for silly me on how I should reheat at the office? I only have a microwave at the office, but I could take my pressure cooker/crock pot. Thanks.

  27. My husband made these yesterday for our Super Bowl party. HUGE HIT. So good! We just absolutely loved them! And they were very quick and easy! We used frozen meatballs, and yes my husband had a hard time finding chili sauce–not really sure exactly what that is. He did find it, it was more like salsa. Not sure if we used the right stuff. But they turned out GREAT!!!

  31. Oh my! This sounds sooo good. I might add a generous shake of Tabasco. This would also be good with Lil’ Smokies instead of the usual chili sauce and grape jelly in a crock pot.

    1. I just realized you posted this recipe last year! I found it in an email with appetizer recipes for New Years. I got it today from Food Now! It’s sent by Cooking Club of America.

    1. A blend of tomatoes, chiles, onions, peppers, vinegar, sugar and spices used as a condiment or seasoning.
      Sriracha is the generic name for a Southeast Asian hot sauce, named for the town of Si Racha. It is made from chile peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt.
      SEASON
      available year-round
      SUBSTITUTIONS
      1 cup tomato sauce + 1/4 cup brown sugar + 2 tbsp vinegar + 1/4 tsp cinnamon + dash of ground cloves + dash of ground allspice = 1 cup chili sauce

  33. I served these as a main course over rice. I was worried about my family liking it but they did! I would probably double the sauce next time instead of just 1 1/2.

    I can't wait to make these as an appetizer next time I need to bring something to a gathering. I always get stumped on what to bring and these will be great!

  35. Firewife, I don't have a meatball recipe that I like to use in place of frozen. I usually just buy the frozen when they go on sale for the same price as ground beef.

    1. All ready cooked frozen meatballs have so many fillers in them, they taste like bad bread crumbs to me. Making your own is so much better and you can make them up ahead of time and freeze them too for when you need them. I would be happy to send you a recipe, contact me at sandiesgalley@gmail.com. These Maple Meatballs do look excellent, I would put them in a crock pot!

  37. Do you have a meatball recipe, if you don't want to buy frozen? My favorite chili sauce is in a round jar with a white lid with black writing I have found it at Maceys.

  39. Perfect football food, for sure! Do you buy the meatballs at Costco by chance? I swear I remember seeing them there–just wondering if they're good.
