I served this at an informal dinner as mini-cocktail meatballs (1" size) but in a sweet and sour sauce, rather than barbecue, and everyone loved them. Next time they will be made into larger ones as an entree served with rice. I like the combination of meats in making meatloaf or meatballs, and ground turkey or chicken would be a good choice to sub for beef or pork to reduce the fat. Baking is the no-brainer cooking method for meatballs in my book, but of course go the skillet route if you don’t want to heat the kitchen up. A good make-ahead recipe, as leftovers freeze well, so one full recipe would make one dinner for immediate use and one to freeze.
