Appetizer Meatballs

I  am cooking again! Well, actually I’ve been cooking all along, but I’m posting the recipes again. I wanted to share these meatballs as a part of my 365 easy recipes. They really are easy and better than the frozen ones you buy at the store!

These delicious Appetizer Meatballs are quite tasty and I’ve been making them for years. Contrary to the name of this dish; Appetizer Meatballs, I use them as an entrée. They are always a hit, however you choose to serve them!

Appetizer Meatballs

1 pound ground beef

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/2 cup soft bread crumbs

1/4 cup milk

1/3 cup finely chopped onion

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Sauce:

1/2 cup ketchup

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup vinegar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/8 pepper

Combine the first seven ingredients; mix well. Shape into 1-inch balls. In a skillet over medium heat, brown meatballs; drain Place in a 1-1/2 quart baking dish. Combine sauce ingredients. Pour over meatballs. Bake, uncovered, at 350º for 50-60 minutes or until meatballs are done.

Of course, I made a few changes. There are always changes! I don’t particularly like the texture of onions but I do like the taste, so I omit the actual onion and use onion powder instead. I never add salt or pepper to any recipe. This time, instead of browning the meatballs in a skillet, I put them in the over at 400º for approximately 20 minutes. As far as the sauce goes, I found that more is needed. I don’t double the recipe, but instead add another half recipe to the one listed above. I hope that makes sense

I always serve these Appetizer Meatballs with mashed potatoes and either corn or green beans.
