Teriyaki meatballs are perfect as a holiday appetizer, and also make for a great side dish or snack at any time of the year! This teriyaki meatballs recipe comes together quickly in one pot- and your kids will love it!
I always keep a bag or two of store-bought prepared meatballs in my freezer. They are so easy to pop into a pot of sauce to jazz up “Easy Pasta Night“. I can add just two other ingredients and make delicious sweet and sour meatballs. And for those lazy Sundays when I want to just make a “snacky dinner” and allow the kids to eat in front of the TV while watching the football game- they are awesome served on toothpicks.
