We have partnered up with Tastefully Simple to create a “game day” recipe for them using one of their delectable products. We wanted this recipe to be easy to make and more importantly, easy to eat! When we think of game day parties, it usually involves beer, chips and dip, and other junk food. But to really make an impression and feed your guests properly, it’s best to make some delicious appetizers that will mayyybe distract them from the game on TV. With the variety of unique sauces that Tastefully Simple supplied to us, we were most intrigued with the Bayou Bourbon Glaze. This savory brown sugar bourbon sauce has a hint of onions, garlic, and molasses, which is perfect to liven-up meats and fish. It’s both sweet and savory, which is similar to that of teriyaki sauce. So why did we choose to make meatballs? Well, it’s a classic ingredient in many dishes, like spaghetti and soup. It’s requires simple ingredients yet yields satisfying results. And to top it off with a special sauce, what more can you ask for?
