Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Sweet & Sour Meatballs

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 SWEET & SOUR MEATBALLS.

In this busy holiday season, we often just don’t have time to make a satisfying meal for our families. Not only is this a delicious and satisfying meal, it’s quick and easy to fix. Need something to take to that holiday office party or family potluck? No need to
fix rice. Just bring the meatball dish and a small bowl of decorative toothpicks for guests to “pick” them up as hot appetizers.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s.

Happy eating!
