Here's a quick and easiest appetizer you make with just 3 ingredients! Yes, you read that right , I have made these yummy babies before , instead of the barbecue sauce..I used chili sauce. They are both amazing! I was craving for flat bread when I made these , so as much I want to stay away from baking I couldn't resist the thought of making flat buns. As a bonus , I had included the recipe for the homemade flat buns as well
( recipe is way at the bottom).
Now for the 3 ingredients barbecue metaballs ...
2 lbs Frozen Meatballs
1 jar of your favorite Barbeque sauce
1 1/2 cup grape jelly or concord grape jam
In a bowl , mix the barbecue sauce and the grape jelly together.
Place the frozen meatballs in your crockpot and pour your sauce.. mix it until the meatballs are coated with the sauce.
Lucky me, I have a cute helper here.. Cook on low for 3-5 hrs or when heated through.
Voila! Tell me that's not the easiest recipe you can make. Serve it as an appetizer or make it a complete meal , serve it with rice ( brown or white) . I served mine with homemade flat bun.. recipe below!
Don't forget to Pin it to save it for later!
HOMEMADE FLAT BUN
3 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 large egg, beaten
2 tbsp, unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp instant yeast
1 cup warm water
In a mixing bowl ( can use hand held mixer or stand mixer, using dough hook) , combine the butter , egg , flour , sugar, salt, yeast and water. Mix on low speed until dough forms.
Knead the dough until it is soft and smooth. Your will look clean , meaning you shouldn't see any dry bits of flour or dough. If npt, you can another tbsp of water and knead until smooth.
Spray a large bowl with non stick spray and put the dough inside. Turn once , just to coat the dough . Cover the bowl with a dish or tea towel and let the dough rise for 1 1/2 hrs . It will double in size.
After the rising , remove from bowl and work on your floured surface. Separate the bowl into 8 equal size dough , Shape them into balls , transfer the individual dough balls into a parchment lined baking sheet. Flatten the doughs.. it will look like a disc.
Cover the flattened rolls and let it rise again , it will look like this :
Preheat oven to 375 deg.
Brush rolls with melted butter and bake it for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Let it cool..
It is delicious!
Cut in half if you desire and fill with the barbecue meatballs. Or not , eat it on the side, each recipe is good on its own.
