Game Day Meatballs.

     It is football season here in the states and that means coming up with some tasty but easy to make football food ideas.  As a bachelor you have to have your own football parties at your house. Inviting over some of your friends and family and serving them something that is appetizing but can be easy to go with the amount of drinking and screaming that goes on during the games.  My family and I are fans of college football just as much as professional football.  To be completely honest I don't really watch professional football.  Any sport on TV is at times boring as I am a remote control clicker that has to be watching multiple shows at one time.  However, when it comes to college football and especially my alum WVU I have to watch the whole thing.  So since it is the season for football I will be posting here and there quick football snack ideas that anyone can make.  Here is my version of the typically cocktail meatball that many people serve with my own twist.  Game Day Meatballs


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 onion diced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 clove garlic diced
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • Handful parsley
  • Salt/pepper

     In a large bowl mix together the ground beef, diced onion, egg, chopped garlic, some bread crumbs, parsley, and salt and pepper. Form into Ping-Pong size balls and place on a baking sheet.  Bake in 350 F oven for about 20-25 minutes.  You will then simmer them in the cocktail sauce on the stove.  Makes roughly 25-30 mini meatballs.

Game Day Sauce:


     Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl.  Pour into a large sauté pan and simmer over low to medium heat.  After meatballs have been cooking in oven, transfer to the sauce and simmer covered on low for about 10-15 minutes.  Serve with toothpicks or on mini buns for a great game day snack.  Enjoy!
