Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Barbecue Meatballs from Karen’s Kitchen


It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is BARBECUE MEATBALLS!

This recipe came from my mother. I remember smelling these savory little balls of heaven all day, every time there was a party or barbecue. The waiting was hard, I tell you! 🙂 It’s the perfect BYO food and so easy to make.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
