I have a fantastic recipe for your game day parties! Delicious Meatballs with Dijon Whiskey Sauce.

So, are you ready for the biggest football game of the year? Just in case you don’t have the details yet, the 53rd Super Bowl will be played starting at 6:30 p.m. this Sunday, February 3. Now, for me and BeeBop, it’s kind of a non-event. Neither of us follows professional football. If we watch, it’ll be all about the commercials and, of course, the food!

Did you know that Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest days of the year for food bloggers? Our blogs get tons of visits on that day from people looking for the perfect thing to serve during the big game. 

Now when it comes to football food or the kind of recipes that I tend to call “grub,” I’ll take some help from the grocery store every time.

For instance, in this recipe, I’ve used purchased frozen meatballs. I mean, really, who has time to roll out dozens of little meatballs on Super Bowl Sunday? Not me. But if you really want to do that, please go ahead.

The sauce is what really makes this recipe special. It’s a combination of chili sauce, Dijon mustard, Tennessee sippin’ whiskey, soy sauce, and brown sugar – kind of a mustardy barbecue sauce with a kick. And it is yummy.

Be sure to simmer it down until it’s nice and syrupy but be careful not to let it burn (there’s a lot of sugar in there). You can cook your meatballs and sauce and then keep them warm in a slow cooker on low heat all during the game.

I serve these meatballs with celery sticks and ranch dressing on the side. Sets off the meatballs perfectly.

Hope you enjoy this one!
