The Happiest & Easiest Meatballs for a Crowd

Sir Kensington’s and Trader Joe’s Party Meatballs, FTW!

Guys! I first made these meatballs for a play-date my son was having, and I promise that they do NOT disappoint. They are truly hitting the easy button for entertaining a crowd: a kids birthday party, game night, or a quick week night meal. All it takes is 5 easy things!

  1. Trader Joe’s Frozen Party Meatballs
  2. 1 c. Sir Kensington’s Ketchup (no, another brand will not do)
  3. 1/4 c. Sir Kensington’s Golden Citrus Vinaigrette
  4. 2 tbsp. honey
  5. Zest of one orange

THAT’S IT! And the directions are even easier.

Preheat the oven according to the instructions on the bag. Grab a sheet pan and spray with non-stick spray. I actually have a spray bottle for olive oil that I use.

Mix together the ketchup, vinaigrette, honey, and orange zest. You may season with additional salt and pepper if that is to your taste, or hot sauce, I think I just added a few cracks of pepper. If you would like the sauce thinner you can add a tbsp of water, to help it coat the meatballs!

Coat the meatballs and bake according to the instructions on the bag. I promise this recipe takes no more than 30 minutes from starting to hitting the table, and they are positively sticky delicious, not too sweet and not too acidic.

They are perfect!
