Ultimate Recipe Swap - Cooking for a crowd
Whenever we attend a potluck or host a BBQ, there are a couple recipes I always turn to, both for ease of preparation and for the amount they make.
Unfortunetly, I don't write down my recipes and just kind of wing it each time - so if you decide to make these, be adventurous, change them up a bit and make them your own!
Sweet & Sour BBQ Meatballs
couple lbs lean ground beef
finely diced onion
any other spices you may like
milk to moisten if needed
Mix the meatball mixture and then form small ping pong ball sized meatballs.
Cook in oven on broiler pan to allow grease to drain off.
bottle of favourite BBQ sauce
same amount of ketchup
thinnly sliced onions
couple tbsps of mustard
couple tbsp brown sugar
Mix all together. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.
Put cooked meatballs into large roasting pan, pour sauce over top and cook in oven at 350 for 45 mins.
Greek Pasta Salad
Cooked & chilled pasta - I usually use spiral or penne pasta
sliced green olives
diced green onion
chopped tomato - I use cherry tomatoes cut into 1/4s
crumbled feta cheese
diced english cucumber
creamy greek salad dressing
I hardly ever have leftovers of either - but if I do, they are both great the next day (and the next :))
