Menu:
Meatballs in a "sauce" warmed up in a roaster. I don't know what sauce to use this time.
A great sauce for party meatballs is a bottle of chili sauce and a jar of grape jelly. Sounds strange, but tastes great!

Hummus makes a great veggie dip, too. High fiber, low fat, no dairy. You can use low-fat dairy items (except the goat cheese ).

Or, make a 7-layer taco dip. Here's a recipe that's close to what I do: Seven Layer Taco Dip - Allrecipes

You can leave out the cream cheese, use low-fat sour cream and reduce the amount of cheddar cheese. With the veggies and refried beans, it's a pretty healthy dish. HTH.

When I did meatballs for my daughter's wedding reception, I found a jar of teriaki BBQ sauce that I warmed them in, and it was great.

Or even better, mix together 1 jar chili sauce (Heinz or your fave) and 1 jar of grape jelly, simmer, stirring until jelly is dissolved, and heat meatballs in that.
