Blackberry BBQ Meatballs

This one is a quick and easy meal for those crazy busy school nights!
The kids really loved it {the adults did too;)}

You'll need a bag {gasp} of meatballs
If you want you could totally make your own meatballs,
I just don't happen to have a ton of time on my hands these day:)
1 c. blackberry jam
2 c. barbecue sauce {your favorite brand}-I used Sweet Baby Rays

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Arrange the meatballs in an 8x8 baking pan and heat in the oven for 10 mins.. Place the jam and BBQ sauce in a medium sauce pan and simmer on medium heat for about 5 to 10 mins. Pour sauce over meat ball and return to oven for 15 mins. Let cool for 5 mins. Serve with your favorite side dish.

Enjoy:)

  11. Love the sound of this. Jams and Barbecue sauce or chili sauce are always a winner on meatballs. I need to check out the frozen ones at Sams Club. Thanks.
