Meatballs are simple to make and are the perfect appetizer. While my base meatball is super versatile, my favorite sauce for these is a Sweet and Sour Meatball sauce! The odds are you have all the ingredients already on hand! Perfectly balanced between both sweet and sour you’ll want to make these at your next gathering!

While meatballs are amazing on their own, if you’re having a party, you’ll want to pair them with other dishes and appetizers.
