Sweet Brown Sugar BBQ Meatballs Featuring Head Country

Mini cocktail meatballs are the perfect dish to carry along to that summer cookout!! Why?

  • You can make them ahead of time
  • They feed a crowd
  • Meatballs - enough said



1 pound ground beef

1/2 pound ground pork

1/2 cup  Italian style panko bread crumbs

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

1 egg

2 cloves garlic, grated

2 tablespoons Head Country Sweet & Spicy Championship Seasoning

Salt and pepper


1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce, The Original


  • Mix all of the meatball ingredients together and form your meatballs.

  • Heat a large frying pan with a little oil and gently, one by one, add in the meatballs. After they cook for about 4 minutes, flip the meatballs and cook an additional 4 minutes. Once they're cooked on the outside, they should be a little less delicate. Making sure none are stuck to the bottom, start tossing them in the pan a little more to cook them evenly. Drain most of the fat, leaving a few tablespoons worth in the pan.

  • Add 2 tablespoons of water to deglaze the pan, scraping up any stuck on pieces. Add the brown sugar, adding a little more water if it looks too dry. It should start to bubble and look like dark caramel.

  • Remove from heat and add in the Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce. Stir well. Serve and top with the chives.
