Easy Awesome Meatballs

Submitted by Thomas B Clymer


Ingredients: Meatballs
• 2 pounds lean hamburger (set out of fridge for a few minutes)
• ½ onion, finely chopped
• 1 sleeve of Ritz crackers, finely crushed
• ½ cup ketchup
• 2 tablespoons Worcester sauce
• 2 tablespoons mustard
• dash of salt and pepper (optional)

Directions: Meatballs
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Put all ingredients listed for meatballs into a large bowl.
3. With clean hands, mix thoroughly. (It helps to have hamburger set out for awhile so it’s not so cold)
4. Once mixed, form into balls 2-3 inches maximum in diameter. (Bigger balls lead to cracked balls)
5. Place balls into a casserole dish. (9×13 works great) (Do NOT use cookie sheet, as there will be grease!)
6. Place in oven and bake for 20-25 mins.
7. While meatballs are cooking, make sauce. (SEE BELOW)
8. Remove from oven and drain off grease.
9. Pour your BBQ sauce over meatballs.
10. Place casserole dish back in oven and bake 10-15 more minutes. (Sauce should stick to your balls)
11. Enjoy!

Ingredients: Sauce
• 1 stick of butter, sliced into chunks
• ½ cup brown sugar
• ½ cup ketchup

Directions: Sauce
1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan.

3. Add Worcester sauce and mix and allow to heat up.
4. When hot, mix (a whisk comes in handy here) in ketchup and then mustard.
5. The sauce will be very thick. If not add more ketchup.
6. Allow the sauce to heat up again and add Short Sugar’s BBQ sauce and mix well.
