Chef Troll's Drunk Food Throwdown

Well, thought I wouldn't make it, didn't ya? Yeah, me too also. 8-]
It's been one wild and crazy spring and summer promises to be much the same, only way hotter.
Anyhow, we're not drinkers, so 'drunk food' is a vague concept, but I figured I'd give it a go. And Duller was very happy to find me elbow deep in meatballs when he got home tonight. This 'recipe' is always a big hit and easy enough to throw together for just about any occasion. I figger, if you've been 'partying' all night, you're not gonna want anything too complicated.

Start with a large bottle of ketchup and a 2-litre 7-Up. Yep, that's all you need for one of the best meatball sauces ever.

Pour in the whole bottle of ketchup and about 2/3-3/4 of the 7-Up. Let simmer about 30-45 minutes.

Normally, I'd make my own meatballs, but it's just way too hot to do that much cooking, so I took a shortcut.

Drop the meatballs in and simmer another hour or so. the longer, the better. The sauce will thicken, if it lasts long enough.

DS topped his sandwich with American cheese and pizza seasoning.

Duller opted for the mozzarella and Greek seasoning.

I had a dessert planned, but nobody had room. Maybe next time.
Now go check out the other entries... from people who actually know what they're doing. 8-]

That looks great and I like the convenience aspect!

But we don't know what you put on your sandwich!

Very surprising ingredients but it sure looks tasty. As does the tater salad. Thanks for playing!

woah. I have never heard of using 7up and ketchup for meatball sauce. I will give that a try soon. Still, it seems very strange. But I like strange.

FC, just the meatbals and cheese. I reckon Duller might add whatever he finds in the fridge if he ever manages to get home before 9.

Troll, the tater salad was a rare (for us) convenience from from Publix deli, so unmentioned. 8-} Their southern style is usually pretty tasty.

Kym, it really does sound strange, but is amazingly delicious. It's by far my most requested bringalong.

Oh, wow! That sounds delicious! I wonder if it would work with a sugar-free 7-up? I'll have to try this and find out!

This brought me back to my childhood. Until I was all growed up I thought marinara sauce was ketchup with some ground meat thrown in. My dad used to make used spaghetti with meat sauce. The "sauce" aspect of it was a bottle of ketchup. I remember once going to my friends house, his mom was italian, and eating real marinara sauce. I didn't like it. Not enough corn syrup I suppose. My dad made goulash the same way. Thanks for the memories.
