Check out my latest Basketball Party Ideas post full of fun ideas on hosting a Basketball Party for Teens and Tweens.
CHEEZ-IT CRUSTED MEATBALLS!
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
– bag of fully cooked frozen meatballs (thawed)
– flour, eggs (beaten), vegetable oil
– dipping sauces (I used honey mustard, bbq, and hot wing sauce)
– 1 box of Cheez-Its or Zesty Cheddar Ranch Grooves (crushed)
GIRLFRIEND TIP I don’t know about you, but I LOVE to cook but seriously don’t have a whole lot of time on my hands as a busy Mom-preneur so I take short cuts when I can! For this recipe, I grab a bag of FULLY COOKED frozen meatballs, thaw them out the night before the game and the next day, I only have few steps to make these. If you make your meatballs from scratch, just be sure to bake them after you’ve fried them to make sure they are cooked completely through.
STEP 1: Crush the Cheez-Its
Place the Cheez-Its into a plastic bag and pound them until they are crushed
STEP 2: Bread the Meatballs
Make a breading station of flour, eggs and the crushed Cheez-Its and roll the meatballs in the flour first, then roll in the eggs and then coat in the crushed Cheez-Its until fully coated.
STEP 3: Fry the Meatballs
Heat up the oil until hot before you add in the meatballs. Add them to the frying pan and brown on all sides. When done, transfer them to a paper towel to drain the excess oil from the meatballs.
STEP 4: Serve with Dipping Sauces
For extra flavor and fun, I put out an assortment of individual cups of dipping sauces that guests can take with their plate of meatballs.
GIRLFRIEND TIP Be sure to put out multiples of the dipping sauces so that you aren’t running back and forth trying to replenish them the entire game. Shown here is just one of each variety.
