- 1 1/2 C hot pepper peach preserves
- 1 C your favorite BBQ sauce
- 1/2 C chili sauce
- 1/2 C whiskey
- dash Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 tsp minced garlic

Tips & Notes
- This recipe can also be made stove top. Whisk together all ingredients for the sauce in the bottom of a small soup pot or dutch oven. Add meatballs and stir to coat with sauce. Cover & cook over medium heat for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- These winning meatballs also make a great meal when served over rice, creamy mashed potatoes or on a bed of Romaine or dark greens as a main course salad. When serving as a salad, try adding goat cheese or crumbled feta!
- Make your own hot pepper peach preserves by adding hot pepper flakes to your favorite brand of peach preserves.
- Alcohol– The alcohol content does evaporate from the sauce as it simmers, leaving only a full, oakey, savory flavor. However, this recipe can be made without adding any whiskey.
