These meatballs have been in my family for generations. The barbeque sauce adds a special kick! I serve these every Sunday during football season and every week they disappear!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef

  • 2 eggs

  • ¾ cup instant oatmeal

  • 3 tablespoons dried minced onion

  • ¾ cup shredded mild Cheddar cheese

  • ¼ cup ketchup

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon pepper

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 (12 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, eggs, oatmeal, onion, Cheddar cheese, ketchup, salt, and pepper using your hands. Form into tiny meatballs about 1 inch wide.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the meatballs, and cook, turning frequently, until browned, about 10 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the meatballs to a baking dish. Cover with barbeque sauce.

  3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheat oven, until sauce is thick and meatballs are cooked through. Serve hot.
