This recipe for cocktail meatballs only contains 3 ingredients- and makes the most tangy and delicious sauce! We love to enjoy our meatballs as an entree with a side of oven-baked fries.... or piled onto sweet Hawaiian buns as mini meatball-sliders! Either way- the kids gobble them up!

Easy Summer Cocktail Meatballs
