These honey sriracha meatballs are the perfect sweet and spicy appetizer for any event! Find out how easy it is to prep these in just about 5 minutes.
I love quick appetizer ideas. For three reasons:
One, you can spend more time on the main course.
Two, they’re perfect for those unexpected guests that might pop in.
And three, they’re perfect for baby showers. Baby showers require a lot of work and a lot of food, so having a simple recipe like this one can make your life so much easier.
Because it’s easy to make a small portion of them, it’s also easy to make them more in bulk for a larger crowd.
The sauce for these meatballs is actually one of the most versatile sauces. I originally used this sauce for baked chicken wings, but it’s even better on these meatballs, I think!
I first made these honey sriracha meatballs for this aztec baby shower post.
And they were so good and so easy, that I knew I needed to share them in full.
Depending on your crowd, you can either serve these individually or on a skewer as meatballs on a stick!
And if there will be young kiddos, you can also leave the hot sauce off or use a little less, so that it isn’t too spicy for your mini guests.
These meatballs couldn’t be easier to make in a hurry as an appetizer for a baby shower! Which is perfect, because this happens to be a virtual baby shower!
My sweet friend, Jenna of A Savory Feast recently welcomed a baby boy into her family, so today a few blog friends and I are throwing her a virtual baby shower!
I so wish we all lived closer so we could celebrate her little boy in person, but instead, we rounded up some of her blogger friends to celebrate online!
We included a few of Jenna’s own recipes (without her knowing!) so be sure to give her posts some love!
