Spicy Meatballs recipe

Are you ready for tailgreatness this football season? I know we are but don’t want to get sidelined with frequent heartburn! Heartburn can be a pest especially when it comes to those delicious, spicy tailgate foods like spicy meatballs. Now we can get all-day, all-night protection from frequent heartburn with Nexium® 24HR* *Use as directed. *May take 1-4 days for full effect.

Make the most of your Game Day with just one pill a day! Nexium® 24HR is the answer for us when it comes to the treatment of frequent heartburn. I grabbed a box of Nexium® 24HR Tablets 42ct while I was shopping at Walmart the other day.

Nexium® 24HR

Nexium® 24HR is the #1 choice of doctors and pharmacists* for their own frequent heartburn. *Among PCPs and Pharmacists who use a branded OTC PPI.

Just one pill a day.

Our favorite tailgate food is spicy meatballs. They are so delicious and perfect for snacking while watching football. You can even make them smaller to be eaten with toothpicks to make game day snacking a breeze!

Spice Meatballs Recipe

I always double or triple this recipe. One recipe makes about a dozen balls that are 1.5″ in diameter but you can make them smaller if you like.



  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 C bread crumbs
  • 1/4 C milk (to cover bread)


  • salt and pepper
  • 1 C ketchup
  • 1 C water
  • 1/4 C sugar
  • 1 T onion flakes
  • 1/4 t chili powder
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper (can omitt or add more/less)
  • 1 t Worcestershire sauce

Mix bread crumbs and milk together. Add more or less milk depending on how well the bread crumbs mix.

Add the bread crumb and milk mixture to hamburger. I usually use my hands to mix it well. You can add salt and pepper in this step.

Make into balls. I normally make mine about 1.5″ in diameter but you could make them smaller to eat with toothpicks easily.

Brown on stove top in a small amount of oil. I turn mine to brown all sides.

To make the sauce: mix ketchup, water, sugar, onion flakes, chili powder, cayenne pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Sauce will seem runny.

Pour the sauce over meatballs and bake in the oven at 350° for 45 minutes. Sauce needs to be cooked down.

  1. These are so tasty and versatile! I plan on making them for my family ASAP. Personally, I like having these alone as just a snack. It’s so cool how many entrees and recipes you can add these to. Instant leftovers!

  2. OK, sold! I think the sweetness will be balanced by the cayenne. I never used to eat anything even slightly spicy…like pepper! But I’ve eased into enjoying a bit of spice over the years and this sounds delicious. I may make them for my family’s next “appetizers for dinner” night!

  3. I’ll take the meatballs and you can keep the medicine since I don’t get heartburn.

  5. I hate to admit it, but at 65 I do not attend any of these anymore…I guess I am missing out on some fun….but thank you for the tip about Nexium® 24HR
