Absolutely brilliant. I made two lots of nibble sized sweet chilli meatballs. I did make my own plain mince meatballs with just a bit of garlic, salt and pepper as I was trying out easy finger food recipes for a future wedding and they were gone almost before I walked back to the kitchen. A big hit and very easy to make and they freeze very well. Will definitely be making again.

Sounds delicious – could you make your own meatballs and put them in raw (not frozen)? I wonder if they would just fall apart if they weren’t browned first?
