I love these meatballs. Love them. I’m not a big fan of bourbon alone but Bourbon Meatballs is one of my favorites. I make these for appetizers or increase the size of the meatball and use them as an entree. The bourbon gives this recipe a rich flavor. Definitely not for kids so if you want to make a meatball everyone can enjoy you may replace the bourbon with apple cider.
If you’re in a time crunch or super organized (I envy your organizational skills if that’s the case) you may make these ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator for two or three days. Put them in a slow cooker or the oven to warm them.
The meatballs freeze well. You can easily double or triple the recipe, cook the meatballs, and freeze them in the appropriate size portions. Make the bourbon sauce when you’re ready for them. Keep this recipe in mind for New Year’s Eve, the Super Bowl and other fun times.
