Friends, don’t you love a hearty, comfort appetizer to serve for a Big Game party? You’ll love these Avocado Cheeseburger Meatballs Appetizers, a hit at every party!

Recently, a friend asked me for an easy “hearty” appetizer to bring to a party. You know, the kind that fills your tummy, is full of great flavors (who doesn’t love flame-broiled?), and is a great protein option when you don’t want to fill up on sweets, popcorn, and chips and dips!

Meatballs are fun to “fancy up,” like this Avocado Cheeseburger Meatballs Appetizer, but they’re also delicious served in their simplicity, especially in all the varieties that Cooked Perfect has to offer. So many flavors, so many options whether you want to serve chicken, turkey, or beef!

I keep bags in the freezer so I’m always prepared. It provides me with quick access to making something delicious. And, did you know they offer a Gluten-Free Italian Style, too? This is a great option when you aren’t prepared for a special diet, so you can accommodate your guests! I love this!

Cooked Perfect Meatballs are crafted using select meats, real cheeses, and savory herbs; then they’re flame broiled to sear in the flavor.

Friends, will you be hosting a Big Game party this year?

  1. We’ll be hosting a small party. Haven’t decided what to serve yet, but asked everyone to bring some type of fun game food.

    What is the texture of these meatballs? I always hesitate because i don’t like when they seem “mushy”…if that’s the right word

  2. I love this healthy low carb snack! My kids love meatballs and avocado!

  3. These are SO FUN Sandy! What a great idea.

  4. I love easy party recipes and this one looks great!
