Easy Appetizer Ideas - al fresco Chicken Meatballs

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
If you are looking for some delicious, easy to prepare appetizer ideas for the big game, check out how I prepared al fresco Chicken Meatballs. These meatballs come in zipper-closure plastic pouches, with about 24 meatballs in the bag. al fresco Chicken Meatballs come in three varieties - Caramelized Onion with roasted garlic and natural smoke flavor, Italian Style with fresh basil and mozzarella, and Spicy Jalapeno and Pepper Jack with fire roasted jalapeno and Monterey jack cheese.
al fresco fully cooked, frozen chicken meatballs are made with lean, skinless chicken meat, are high in protein and even gluten free. They have 60% less fat and 30% less sodium than beef meatballs. I prepared the Spicy Jalapeno and Pepper Jack meatballs on the stovetop, at medium heat, with a can of tomato sauce, for 18 minutes. They were delicious, with a slight kick of heat, and an easy to serve appetizer for any get-together!
I wanted to try something different with the Carmelized Onion meatballs. I separated out eight of the meatballs and placed the remainder of them into a baking pan. I preheated the oven to 375 degrees. Using a can of refrigerated crescent dough, I pressed the cut lines together and cut 8 squares of dough.
I took the eight meatballs and wrapped each into a dough square, then wrapped the corners up over the top. I placed these alongside the other meatballs in the baking pan. I baked them all together for 18 minutes, then pulled out the baking pan and removed the dough-wrapped ones.
I sprinkled some shredded cheese over the remainder of the meatballs in the baking pan, then put them back in the oven for five minutes so the cheese could melt. So! That's three appetizer ideas from just two bags of meatballs! It took me just 30 minutes total to prepare all three ideas and I think they look as good as I now know they taste.
I am delighted with al fresco Chicken Meatballs and absolutely recommend them. Visit their website at www.alfrescoallnatural.com to learn more about their products and where you can purchase them at a location near you. They also have some great recipe ideas on their site!
