Hello Holiday Parties!

It’s the time of year when all the best appetizers come out to play.

This year I’m ready. I’ve got hot dip recipes, and cheese ball recipes<LINK>, and stuffed mushrooms, and pull apart bread, and snack mix, and kettle corn, and the mother of all holiday party snacks… Super saucy meatballs.

With this kind of spread, every party I throw is sure to be a huge success.

Meatballs are always a crowd-pleaser, and knowing people enjoy the dishes I cook makes me happy. Yet what makes me even more happy is when I can prep a recipe quickly, throw it in the crockpot, and move onto something else.

To make theses marvelous asian-style meatballs, dump several saucy ingredients in the slow cooker, like Thai Chili Sauce, a little hoisin, soy, sesame oil, and a little guava juice for kicks.

Then mix ground pork sausage with garlic, ginger, chiles, and panko bread crumbs, then roll into little balls.

Toss the balls into the sauce and let them slow cook for a while.

While you are off polishing your nails or reading a book, the meatballs mix and mingle in their tangy-sweet bath turning soft and tender.

When you are ready to serve them, scoop them out of the crock and ladle on a little extra sauce. Spicy tangy-sweet meaty goodness awaits!

A statement that says, I’ve got a saucy personality, but am still practical enough to throw meatballs in a crockpot… I’m exciting, but casual.

Sounds like a catch to me!
