Meatball Hors D’Oeuvres

If you’re planning your Super Bowl menu you must serve these delicious meatballs.  They are easy to make and will be gone before kickoff.  The good news is that you can make them a day in advance. 


1 Pound Ground Beef

2 Egg Yolks

1/3 Cup Dry Bread Crumbs

1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese

2 Tablespoons Chopped Parsley

3/4 Teaspoon Garlic Salt

3/4 Teaspoon Chili Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Oregano

1/4 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

2 Tablespoons Chopped Stuffed Olives

1/4 Cup Olive Oil

In a large-size bowl place ground beef, egg yolks, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, garlic salt, chili powder, oregano, pepper, and olives. Mix well. Form mixture into 30 one inch balls. In a large-size skillet add olive oil and heat over a medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add meatballs and cook until well browned. Be careful not to crowd the skillet. Drain on paper towels. Warm Tangy Barbecue Sauce in a medium-size pan and pour over meatballs. Serve warm from a chafing dish.  Makes 30 meatballs.
