1-Bag of fully cooked meatballs
2c-Spicy Bbq Sauce
Mini round rolls- approx 30-36
Depending on your pan size you may need to cook half of the recipe at a time. Take thawed meatballs and brown them in a heated pan with the olive oil. Add your honey whiskey, garlic powder, onion powder and let reduce. Place meat balls in crock pot pour and mix in BBQ sauce and let slow cook on medium low or let simmer on the stove for an hour or so , making sure to stir occasionally. You can add more BBQ sauce if needed. (They are fully cooked, so you can actually eat them after saucing, but the slow cooking in the allows them to absorb all the flavor and juices.)
Building the sandwiches: Take your slider roll and cut 1/4 of the way. Take approx. 4 meatballs and slice in half then layer in roll. I like to build a few for presentation and grab and go, but you can also set up your chaffing dishes or leave in crock pot and let your guest make their own. Easy!!!
