Grandmother’s Meatballs


    Super easy to make and very more-ish, this is my go-to appetizer recipe, always popular at get togethers, dinner parties, family gatherings etc. I often get asked for the recipe and tease guests that it is a secret family recipe handed down from my grandmother, hence the name!


    1 packet bite-size meatballs
    2 cups Mr Yoshida’s Original Gourmet (or similar) sauce
    1 cup water

    Cooking Instructions

    Step 1
    Combine the Mr Yoshida’s (or similar) sauce and water in a pan. Below is a photo of the brand of sauce that I use.

    Gently bring to a boil over medium heat. Cover and and cook on low until heated through (10-15 minutes depending on whether they are frozen or not). The meatballs will turn a dark brown color.
