Coca Cola Meatballs
Coca Cola Meatballs may sound a bit strange, but pop is an interesting and versatile addition to a lot of prepared foods including both savory and sweet dishes. And this dish is a great blend of just a few sweet and savory commercial ingredients along with pre-made meatballs that allow this dish to come together in minutes. And that also means your up and coming baker or cook can make it for every one. So let him or her do it; some times it is just more fun to put your feet up, and let some one else take charge of the kitchen.
Coca cola is a soda pop that is more than 100 years old. It has out lasted many of its competitors such as orange crush. The recipe for coca cola is quite secret of course, and many of may remember the outcry that rose up when coke officials changed the original recipe. It just goes to show how much people like their traditions, and simply do not want them changed or altered for any reason. In any event, some of the flavor notes in coca cola include caramel and a slight peppery finish, along with the sweetness from the sugar, of course. These flavors settle in to the background of this meat ball recipe and give depth to the sauce and the meat.
This dish can be served by itself as an appetizer, and can be fed to the family for a snack or brought to a party and served with tooth picks. It is a versatile thing to make, and very easy, not to mention down right cheap. If you want to make it part of a meal, serve it with rice or potatoes, both of which would taste great against the meat balls and make up a can of corn or peas. If you are feeling ambitious, fresh steamed carrots would also taste great with the rice and meat balls. Enjoy this dish soon, won’t you?
