This week’s recipe is another one from my sister, Mike, who also brought us the Sausage Macaroni Casserole. It’s delicious and promises to be a kid’s favorite. I think of it as meatloaf in ball form. Please note, though, that the amounts listed for the sauce are double what Mike had in her version; you might find my sauce heavy, though. My feelings won’t be hurt if you revert to the original.
Meatballs:1 lb. ground beef
1 cup bread crumbs
1 cup milk
1 cup chopped onions
6 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. red wine vinegar
1 cup ketchup (or “catsup” if you prefer)
3 Tbsp. worstershire sauce
Preheat oven to 400°. Mix together the meatball ingredients and form mixture into balls (about 14-16). Place into a lightly greased 6” x 10” casserole dish (I have also used a round glass pie dish).
In a skillet, sauté onions in butter. Add remaining ingredients. Cook over medium heat until hot, stirring occasionally.
Pour sauce evenly over meatballs. Bake for 45 minutes.
