This is a variation on my Mamma Mia Meatballs. Makes an elegant appetizer served with fancy toothpicks.
You could also hand make your meatballs with ground beef and cracker crumbs. I just find the frozen ones quicker.

How to Make Hot Asian Meatballs

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350°F. Place meatballs in an oven proof casserole dish and heat in oven while preparing sauce.
  • 2Stir together the apricot preserves, hot pepper jelly, ketchup, soy sauce and ginger in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, then simmer 5 minutes. Pour over meatballs.
  • 3Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until sauce has thickened and meatballs glisten. Stir once or twice during cooking. These just get better the longer they cook.
