Party Size Mini Meatballs

I will admit right now, I have and will continue to try to pass these off as my own. They are so incredibly juicy and flavorful, but the best part is that they are that delicious right out of the microwave. I have served them at parties (as the very clever name indicates) with Trader Joe's tzatziki sauce. They practically disappeared. They are also a favorite of my toddler, she gives them a thumbs up too!

I didn't expect much from these but was really surprised. They do great in the microwave with some of TJ's Bolognese sauce or madeira mushroom soup/sauce.

they are good honest meatballs and all you need is some dipping sauce to take them to the next level. My rec: Heinz chili sauce and plum jelly.

i love these. i heat them in a little butter to serve with butter & garlic pasta. they are great in tomato sauce for meatball sandwiches. i also heated them and served them with a honey-mustard sauce for appetizers at Christmas, a big hit with my young nephew.

These party-size Meatballs are so perfect for almost any occasion. Like the other tasters, they are perfectly delicious right out of the microwave. If you would like a new spin on a dipping sauce, try the Blackberry-Pinot Noir in the recipe section under Quick. We made these for the holidays and went through 4 bags and only had 30 guests. It was a hit!

We've tried the Italian meatballs and the Turkey ones, and decided they are too large and rich for everyday fare. I buy the party meatballs 2-3 bags at a time and keep them i nthe freezer. Toss a couple in the nuker with a little bbq sauce for a quick snack, add them to spaghetti sauce, Heck, I've even mashed 'em up when a recipie called for a just a little meat ofr flavor. These suckers ROCK.

Dip these mini meatballs in TJ's Hot Sweet Mustard and watch everyone go nuts! This is a great combo.

Went shopping yesterday and they were sampling these meatballs with sweet and sour sauce (I would never in a million years think to combine the 2!!) WOW! They were INCREDIBLE!! I was really surprised. Needless to say I bought 2 bags and made 1 for dinner (with the s/s sauce.) The second bag I am planning on using for hoagies ... but I think you could do almost anything with them. (I might even chop them up and put in my lasagna)

If you haven't tried these, TRY THEM!!

My suggestion ,,

Meatball Stroganoff

use either the this or the meatless meatballs
plus

easy to make

1). Heat and Brown the balls
2). After the Frozen Balls Meat or Meatless are Cooked just removed from the pan until later
3). Add your pre-diced onions and pre-sliced mushrooms both easy to get at TJ's
4). Add a little butter or like product
5). Then add a little Chicken Stock - using the TJ Stock you can just screw the top back on for the next use
6). Then add a little mixture of flour combined with butter that you combinded until it made fine paste
7). Add a little wine if you wish and then some sour cream
8). Then add back the Balls
9). Season with a little pepper

Final Step , and a strong Suggestion
Try the

Trade Joes , Pappardelle , Egg Pasta with the dish , they are long wonder egg noodles and yes thank God with egg yolks included :)

I quickly nuked a few and dipped them in sweet and sour sauce (which is pretty common, Rachel!) and they were tasty and tasted "real." Unfortunately, I also looked at the half-bitten meatball and wish I hadn't done that. They had an unpleasant "darky spot" in each one, like nuked meat. That kinda put me off my feed, but I closed my eyes and popped them in and they tasted quite good. I'll make some mini meatball hoagies with these, this week, and remind myself that you don't need to analyze meatballs, salami, sausage, or politicians, too closely, or you'll be disappointed.

This is one of only two items fm TJ in which i was disappointed. cooked in the oven and they rendered a lot of grease. the taste was pretty bad too...

I eat these every week simmered in a tomato basil sauce.

I buy a basic tomato sauce and I add chopped fresh basil, sliced mushrooms and a bay leaf and I simmer the meatballs in the sauce.

I then serve it over whole wheat spaghetti with homemade garlic bread.

They are certainly addictive and taste really good!

The first time I had these they were serving them as a sample with their Korean BBQ sauce. Delicious. I've served them several times at parties and everyone passed up some homemade meatballs for these and wanted my recipe. They've since stopped selling the Korean BBQ sauce, but it's available at a local market.

I got the ravioli soup recipe from a demo at my local TJ's - 2 boxes of the TJ's Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato soup, bag of these meatballs, half a bag of dried mini ravioli, throw in some basil or whatever Italian herbs, simmer - amazing comfort soup!

I really did not like these at all! Funny taste! I am a meat eater and I will choose the Meatless Meatballs over these any day!

i eat meat but these were too greasy tasting, i prefer the "fully cooked turkey meatballs", much healthier and tastier!

My husband loves these little meatballs. They are so easy to toss in the oven (best flavor) and throw in some heated sauce. Any leftovers are great in a meatball sandwich with crusty bread and melted cheeses... mmm
