BBQ Meatballs

Where better to turn for down-home comfort food than a church cookbook? We had these at Christmas and they were delicious in an old-fashioned way. They're basically like meatloaf in ball form, and can be spiced up according to taste. From Elim Centennial 1883-1983 Cookbook, Elk River MN.

Makes about 55 1" balls.

Great with mashed potatoes and a veggie side.


Preheat oven to 375°

Meatballs:
2 lb ground beef
1 c. quick cooking oatmeal or breadcrumbs
1/2 c. milk
2 eggs
1 package onion soup mix

Roll into balls and bake on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes at 375°.

Sauce:
1 c. catsup
4 Tbsp. butter
4 Tbsp. light molasses
2 Tbsp. vinegar
4 Tbsp. water

Simmer the sauce ingredients for 15 minutes. Mix the meatballs into the sauce.
