Barbequed Meatballs by Jackie

This recipe makes tons of meatballs - about 35 to be exact! Kids love them because they are basically meatloaf in a fun shape.

Meatball Ingredients:
1 (13oz.) can evaporated milk
3 lbs. lean ground beef
2 cups one minute oatmeal, uncooked (run it through food processor to make it finer)
2 eggs
1 cup chopped onion
¼ tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. salt

Meatball Assembly Directions:
Mix together well and shape with an ice cream scoop. Place in a baking dish.

Sauce Ingredients:
2 cups ketchup
1 ½ cup brown sugar
2 tsp. Liquid Smoke
1 ½ tsp. garlic powder
½ cup chopped onion

Sauce Assembly Directions:
Mix together and pour over meatballs.

If Bake on Assembly Day:
Bake at 350 for 60-70 minutes.

To Freeze:
Bake meatballs for 18 minutes on 350. Let them cool and freeze. Can be frozen in the sauce or you can make the sauce separately on serving day.

Serving Day Directions:
Bake from frozen at 350 for 60-70 minutes.

Perfect as an appetizer for a party: Form smaller 1-inch balls. Bake at 350° for 18 minutes or until browned. Place in slow cooker in sauce for 4 hours on low.


  1. These were very tasty. My smallest child even ate them and that is a pretty big deal since she is very picky when it comes to eating meat.

  2. I love things you can cook "from frozen!" - especially since I often forget about dinner until about 4-o'clock!! ;) These were great - I can see how they'd be good appetizers as well! Kids liked them well enough too!
