PEACH RIESLING GLAZED MEATBALLS are an easy party appetizer recipe! You could even serve these over rice for a tasty dinner on busy weeknights!
I was looking over some older recipes on the site and came across Peach Riesling Glazed Ham. It’s so good but how often do we eat ham? Maybe three times a year? I decided that I wanted to make an appetizer for snacking on, while watching the playoffs, that was simple so I went to my favorite, meatballs! I love appetizer meatball recipes! We’ve got Cranberry Meatballs, Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs and Pinot Noir Meatballs but I tell you what! You can never have too many meatballs!!! Peach Riesling Glazed Meatballs were a HUGE success!!! I made them first a few weeks ago and we had them for dinner. I don’t really think that was the plan but after the pictures were snapped I had one and then my husband and then we kept going back for more and more and more!!! We couldn’t stop and soon they were gone! YIKES!
This is such an easy recipe that I know I’ll be making them a lot! I love a make ahead recipe when having a party and these are just that! You could make the meatballs and then freeze them until you’re ready to use them. Once you are, you would simply pull out the meatballs and add them into the glaze mixture, even frozen! Just heat them up slowly and make sure that they are warmed all the way through before you serve them. I’m not waiting for another party to make these again! I’ll be serving over a bed of rice or with bell peppers and onions for an easy weeknight dinner. I can’t wait for you to give this a try!!!
