These are really moist and tasty meatballs. I have included the sauce recipe if you want to make bar-b-qued meatballs for a holiday party. To use them for Spaghetti and Meatballs just leave out the chile powder and put in a tsp. of basil leaves and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. This makes 75+ balls.
1 can of evaporated milk
3 lbs. of extra lean ground beef
(I have made them with ground turkey also)
2 C. quick oatmeal
1 C. Chopped onion
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chile powder
Mix together well and form into desired size balls. Place close together on a cookie sheet and broil until they are lightly browned. Turn if you want but it is not necessary.
The sauce: 2 C. catsup, 1 1/2 C. Brown sugar 1/2 C. chopped onion and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and 1 T. liquid smoke.
Pour the sauce over the meatballs and bake covered at 350 for 1 hour. Stir gently after 1/2 hour.
Make the entire batch and freeze half for a later time if this is too many for one use.
