Bruce Julian Bloody Mary Meatballs

” Lucy did you make the Meatballs yet?” ” Lucy you made those Meatballs right?” Lucy have you made the Meatballs yet? I need to know!” – All these thing have been asked of me for more than 2 months by SWMBO.  She is a great friend that keeps me humble and on track. The fact she has tasked me with cooking one simple thing that I still have not done is my fault. Now 2 months later I’m FINALLY making the meatballs.

Who doesn’t love a meatball right? There are several restaurants here in Raleigh alone dedicated to the love of this wondrous food. I personally have my own recipe. However it is time to expand and try out the flavors our vendors are providing us. Here I am using the recipe direct from the Bruce Julian Website with one exception. We do not carry the Picante Pepper Sauce. We do however carry Zing! sauce.

After I made the meatballs I served them over pasta. However I felt this was not appropriate. These definitely have a different flavor that your typical meatball. They are quite tasty though, definitely sweeter. If I served these in the future I would do so as a meatball sub with some black olives on top or I would serve them as a stand alone dish. These would be perfect for party to bring a new flavor to friends.
