Seems I always have a half-ful bottle of Major Peters Bloody Mary mix in my fridge... Here's a great recipe if you do too! This recipes uses frozen meatballs, but one of my favorite homemade meatball recipes is Diner Meatloaf and Meatballs Mixture

Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 3 12-4 cups bloody mary mix (I like Major Peters for this recipe because its thicker than clamato juice)
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 12 teaspoon cayenne (more if you like spicy)
  • 18 cup brown sugar
  • 2 -3 lbs frozen meatballs

Directions

  1. Place frozen meatballs in crock-pot.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring remaining ingredients to a boil until sugar has dissolved. Pour mixture over meatballs and give a quick stir to coat meatballs.
  3. Cook on high for 2-3 hours or low for 6-8 hours.

This was very good! I used frozen meatballs as listed in the recipe, but I think this would be soooo much better with homemade meatballs. The sauce is sweet with a little bit of "hot". It's not as sweet as the meatballs in jelly sauce, and not like a barbecue or italian sauce either...its unique! Thanks for sharing!
