Sweet ‘n Spicy Meatballs ~ NEW 31 Days of 5-Ingredient Meal

Easy dinner recipe for a 5 ingredient Sweet 'n Spicy Meatballs from 5DollarDinners.com

Pre-made meatballs.

Bell peppers.

Sauce.

Rice.

Yes, it’s that simple.

I’ve been experimenting with all kinds of fun sauces on the Asian aisle the past few months. Mostly for testing new MyFreezEasy recipes, but also because they are so delicious!!!

With this recipe, you saute the bell peppers in a little oil. You could add some diced onion, since we still have room for 1 more ingredient in our 5-ingredients or less criteria! Once they soften a little bit, toss in the pre-cooked meatballs (thaw them, if they were frozen) and let them warm up a bit before dousing it all in the delicious sweet n spicy sauce.

My guess is there are a number of different options at your grocery store for the sauce – just look at the products available in the Asian section and find a sauce that is sweet and has a little kick. You could also do a sweet n sour sauce and toss in some crushed red pepper too.

Also – where to find pre-made meatballs??? Depends on the store – I’d look in the fresh meat case, the prepared meat case (like near the hot dogs or bacon) or in the freezer section. (If you have a Costco membership, look for the Aidell’s Teriyaki meatballs or the Mango Habanero meatballs…either would be perfect for this meal!)

Enjoy!

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken ~ NEW 31 Days of 5-Ingredient Meal

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken from 5DollarDinners.com

KID FAVORITE ALERT.

This is a kid favorite. It’s chicken. It’s dippable. It’s yellow. And it’s delicious.

In this recipe, I’ve added a touch of vinegar into the marinade and the reason for that is to cut down on the chicken-y flavor. Sometimes baked chicken has a chicken-y flavor that is just too chicken-y, so I add vinegar to cut that down. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, ignore me. If you do, try adding a splash of vinegar to your chicken marinades.)

Anywho…simple marinade and sauce that goes onto the chicken while it’s baking. AND YUMMMMMMM is what you’ll pull out of the oven.

If you kids are “dippers,” and have to dip their chicken into something. I’d have them dip into honey mustard sauce (for the fullest possible honey mustard chicken!) or even ketchup. (Note: do NOT use the same sauce that you used to marinate. Discard unused marinade!)

For homemade honey mustard dipping sauce, I’d just do 1:1 honey:mustard, whisked together. Super simple.

Now, it’s your turn to get this made and onto your dinner table!!!

Bacon Alfredo Pasta

Yield – 6 servings

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 12 oz. pasta
  • 12 oz. bacon, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups half and half
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • Fresh veggies, as side dish

Directions

  • Prepare pasta as directed on package to al dente doneness.  Drain.  Toss with a little olive oil to keep it from sticking if the pasta is done ahead of the sauce.
  • In a medium saute pan, brown the bacon until it’s crispy. Remove the bacon to a plate lined with paper towel to drain the bacon. Chop the bacon slices once they cool slightly.
  • Drain the bacon pan, reserving 1 Tbsp of bacon drippings in the pan.  Add the half and half to the pan and turn the stove to low to bring the liquid to a low simmer. Slowly whisk in the Parmesan cheese. Stir continually until cheese is melted. Simmer over low until sauce thickens.  This should take about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the garlic.
  • Prepare fresh veggies.
  • Serve Bacon Alfredo Pasta sprinkled with chopped bacon and a side of fresh veggies.
