BBQ MeatballsThis recipe is an old family favorite from an Ohio Amish Country cookbook called “Spice of Life.” If you would like to buy a copy of the “Spice of Life” cookbook, just email for information.

2-1/2 pounds ground beef (90% lean)
1/2 pound hamloaf (if you do not have hamloaf, you can use and additional 1/2 pound ground beef)
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons Lawry’s seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 cup cracker crumbs (I use saltines)
2 eggs

2 cups ketchup (1 16oz. bottle – no measuring!)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup finely chopped onion (sweet onion is best)

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Mix all the meatball ingredients and shape into walnut-sized balls.

Place meatballs in single layer on jelly roll pan and bake for 15-20 minutes.

When the meatballs are golden brown and delicious, remove from oven and place meatballs in a 9″x13″ casserole or glass pan in a single layer.

In a large bowl whisk the ketchup and brown sugar together. Small brown sugar lumps are OK. Stir in remaining sauce ingredients and mix well.

Slowly pour over baked meatballs and bake again for 35-40 minutes at 325° F.
