You know what I love? A good cocktail meatball. You know what I hate? Being on hold with Comcast! I’m on hold with hem right now, and have been on hold for an hour! Yes, an hour! All I want to do is lower my damn bill, is that too mush to ask? I really want to hang up and call back during my lunch break tomorrow, but I feel like I’m just one minute away from being connected to a customer service rep. Giving up now would make this past hour a total waste, I’m not ready to bail just yet. Maybe in the time it takes me to finish this post I’ll be connected…if not, then I’ll hang up.
Onto the cocktail meatball. I’m not going to tag these as a ‘quick and easy’ recipe, but this was pretty easy to whip together. These are the perfect little crowd-pleaser meatballs, and you could easily keep these in a crock pot during a party with little toothpicks on the side. If making these for a party, you’ll definitely want to double or triple the recipe. I made mine a little larger since I was have them for dinner as my entree. This is a definite keeper!
Ok Comcast, I’m out. But I will be giving you a piece of my mind when I finally get through tomorrow!
Ingredients-Yielded 7-8 Meatballs
-1/2 pound ground beef
-1 garlic clove, minced
-2-3 tablespoons plain breadcrumbs
-1/2 teaspoon onion powder
-1/2 cup ketchup
-1/2 cup dark brown sugar
-1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
-1 tablespoon BBQ sauce (I had some KC Masterpiece on hand)
-1/4 cup soy sauce
1. Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl, combine the beef, garlic, egg, breadcrumbs and onion powder. If mixture is too loose, add more breadcrumbs 1 tablespoon at a time. Form into meatballs and place on baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and BBQ sauce. Bring to a simmer.
3. When meatballs have about 5 minutes left in the oven, remove and top each with 1 teaspoon of the sauce (or a little more, just enough to cover them slightly). Continue to bake the remaining time, serve immediatley with sauce spooned over top.
