BLUEBERRY BARBECUE MEATBALLS
Simply to make. Glazed , sticky, oven roasted meatballs with a super easy sweet bbq sauce. They require only 2 ingredients. Jam & a barbecue sauce of your choice. I have used blueberry jam because i had it from last summer but really work great with whatever preserve you have. If you desire you can add chilli or tabasco , you can add more than 100 gr bbq sauce. Depends on your personal taste. I use more jam because i like sweet flavors but if you desire more bbq sauce you can add it. No limits for your fantasy. Serve hot with cheese, fry potatoes , rice or simply as an appetizer.
