BBQ Meatballs - Wendy's version

This makes a great appetizer dish too.  Make larger meatballs for a meal.  This is great when served with baked potatoes.

3 lbs. Ground Beef
3/4 cup Milk
1 stack Saltines
3 eggs
1 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove, pressed
3/4 teaspoon Paprika
2 teaspoons Salt
1 1/2 cups BBQ Sauce (Sweet Baby Rays)

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.  I used my hands to mix.  I then use my small cookie scoop to make balls in a 8x11 foil cake pan.  This recipe is enough to make 2 pans, so I split it in half for 2 meals.  Cover with plastic wrap and foil and freeze.

Pour BBQ sauce in Ziploc bag.  Freeze.

To Serve:
Thaw.  Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes or until heated through.

For larger meatballs, approximately 3 tablespoons per meatball, bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes after allowing them to thaw.  Bake potatoes can cook with these at the same time. 

Yield:  60 or more small meatballs per 2 meals.


  1. My kids loved these at asked for more. Not too spicey, but good enough for my spicey loving husband.

  2. We loved these! The kids prefer theirs without sauce, so I just served the sauce on the side. Worked out perfectly. Thanks!

  3. very good! We did the sauce on the side. Very good. I took them to a pot luck and I caught some people making sandwiches with them, putting them in their Cincinnati three ways....Great flavor and I loved the small size.
