Recipe Timeout: Mike's Meatballs, BBQ Style

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.


1 lb. ground beef

1 cup bread crumbs
1 cup milk
1 egg


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.
