Since starting the blog, I find myself on high alert for possible new items I can experiment with. When Judy said meatballs, my blogging light bulb went off. She shared her basic recipe for making meatballs (thanks, Judy!), which I've only tweaked a little. This is more of recipe suggestion for the meatballs, but the possibilities with these are endless...you could use them for spaghetti, on salad, as appetizers, meatball subs... I personally enjoyed several of them right out of the oven, when no one was looking. I'm really excited about the success of my first homemade meatball attempt, so you'll be seeing lots of fun twists on meatballs in the very near future!
Sweet and Sour Meatballs
- 1.5-2lbs lean ground beef
- 2t montreal steak seasoning
- 2T Worcestershire sauce
- 2T ketchup
- 2 eggs
- 1/2-3/4C breadcrumbs (you may have to add more or less)
- 1 bottle chili sauce
- 1 jar grape jelly
- optional: rice to serve with meatballs and sauce (I used brown rice.)
Preheat oven to 375.
Mix all ingredients until well incorporated.
Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for 20-30 minutes until done.
Heat chili sauce and grape jelly in a large pot until warm, toss in meatballs and simmer until coated.
Serve over rice or with toothpicks for an appetizer.
