I forgot to share my meatball recipe yesterday.  Well the sauce is my Auntie Edna’s recipe but she used store-bought meatballs.  I make my own and just add them straight to the sauce (no pre-browning).

BBQ Meatballs

1lb ground beef                              1 sm. onion, chopped fine

1/2 c bread crumbs                      1/2 t garlic powder

1/2 c milk                                         salt & pepper
Saute onions and add to other ingredients.


1 1/2 c ketchup                             3/4 c brown sugar

3T mustard                                       3 T vinegar

Mix up sauce in casserole dish.  Form meat into small balls and drop directly into sauce.  Cover and bake 350F for about 1 hour.

Grandma always likes when I make mashed potatoes to go along with BBQ meatballs.  Personally, since the oven is on for an hour, it’s the perfect time to make baked potatoes or scalloped potatoes.

If you have the time, make these to go with the meatballs:
