Recipe: Basic Meatballs

This is a basic recipe for meatballs using ground beef. My husband and I both liked them so I thought I would post....I love a good meatball! This is from The Pioneer Woman (one of my favorite food blogger) website.

BBQ Meatballs - Comfort Food to the Max

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
3/4 cup oats
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons very finely minced onion
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
plenty of ground black pepper

1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire
4 to 6 tablespoons onion
Dash of Tabasco

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all meatball ingredients. Roll into medium-small balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place sheet in freezer for five minutes.

Remove from freezer and immediately dredge in unseasoned flour.

Brown meatballs in canola oil until just brown. Place into a baking dish.
Combine all sauce ingredients. Pour over meatballs and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Serve with egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or crusty french bread.

Her sauce is a ketchup tasting sauce, similar to what I have had on meatloaf. If you don't want that kind of sauce, you could just use your favorite barbecue sauce or use a can or two of Cream of Mushroom Soup and it would be more like Swedish meatballs.
