Meatballs are one diverse food. First of all, it doesn't matter what kind of meat you use: beef, pork, chicken, turkey, or tofu, they are fun size morsels that can be dunked or simmered with a variety of sauces to delight the tastebuds. Using Smokin' Mary Bloody Mary Mix as a base for your meatballs gives these little treats a kick that will be sure to start a meal off right.
We like to make appetizer meatballs for an impressive pre-game snack. We like to bake the meatballs, but you can cook them in a slow cooker or InstaPot as well.
