Meatballs are a pretty big meal staple in the Armstrong household. I love that so many different herbs, spices, and sauces can be used to make each meal a little bit different. Plus, meatballs freeze really well. I typically have a stash in my freezer for a quick meal when I’m not in the mood to cook.
Some of my favorite meatball recipes are the ranch meatballs, spicy cheddar meatballs, or buffalo chicken meatballs.
We were having friends over for one of the OKC Thunder playoff games and I was trying to come up with a quick, finger food style menu. I was able to throw these meatball skewers together in no time.
With meatball skewers, you can accommodate yourself (and other low carb friends) by keep the bread as a side (if you want to offer it at all!). Set out several different condiments for the guests to choose….I had ketchup, mustard, sugar free BBQ sauce, blue cheese dressing, and sriracha mayo. They were all a hit!
