This recipe for Loaded Texas Meatballs will become a favorite with your family and anyone lucky enough to
eat watch the game with you.
For the meatballs:
1 pound ground beef
1/4 pound ground sausage
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt (don’t leave it out!)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 teaspoon Texas Bird Bath
For the topping:
1/4 cup Bird Bath
14 cup shredded cheddar cheese
16 pickled jalapeno slices
1 tbs sour cream
What to do:
In a large bowl, combine all of the meatball ingredients and mix thorough. Form into 16-20 meatballs. Put the meatballs on a cookie sheet with low sides, and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees. Remove from oven and drain thoroughly.
Once drained and cool enough, arrange the meatballs on an ovenproof serving dish. Top each meatball with a teaspoon of Bird Bath and a teaspoon of shredded cheese. Place under the broiler until the cheese is melted – about a minute. Remove from the oven and top each meatball with a dab of sour cream and a slice of pickled jalapeno.
Any Texas Pepper Jelly product will work with this recipe, so if you’d like to try any of our Rib Candy flavors or pepper jellies, give it a go! We’ve made these meatballs in many different ways and they’ve all been delicious!
I always double or triple this recipe when we’re having people over, though. The meatballs are big, but most people want a lot of them.
Stick a toothpick into each meatball and serve!
Happy Football Season!
