Party Time Sweet And Sour Meatballs

Party food! Yumm! Don't you just love the sight of a long table filled with a colorful array of food in all forms? We had these for Christmas but I think they would be perfect for a New Year's Eve party. This is the first year I tried these and they were seriously addicting. Good thing there were chocolates and cookies to distract me, cause I think I could've eaten this whole dish myself!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

1 pound ground beef (use extra lean for lower fat version)
1 pound ground turkey
1 small onion, minced
1/4 egg substitute
1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs (I used regular and added Italian spices)
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup low-sodium Worcestershire sauce
3 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons dry mustard

Combine first 5 ingredients. Shape mixture into 1 inch balls. Brown meatballs, in batches, in large skillet over medium high heat. Remove meatballs from skillet, and wipe skillet clean. Stir together ketchup and remaining 4 ingredients in skillet. Bring to boil.

Add meatballs. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or until meatballs are no longer pink.

Makes 3 1/2 dozen

To make gf/cf: Substitute gf/cf bread crumbs and make sure ketchup is gf/cf. Very easy to alter and it still tastes great!

"At every party there are two kinds of people -- those who want to go home and those who don't. The trouble is, they are usually married to each other."
