Comfort Meatballs

Serves: 6

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 c. quick oats
1 c. milk
2 T. minced onion
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper

2 T. oil
1/2 c. flour

1 c. ketchup
2 T. sugar
3 T. vinegar
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
3 T. minced onion

In a large bowl, combine all meatball ingredients (excluding oil & flour); mix well. Roll into tablespoon-size meatballs and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes to firm. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Roll each meatball in flour and cook in the oil until light brown. Once they are browned, place them in a greased rectangular baking dish. In a small bowl, stir together sauce ingredients and pour evenly over meatballs. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until bubbly and hot.

Tips: These were delicious meatballs and are great over hot mashed potatoes or buttered noodles. If you like a lot of sauce then you might want to double the recipe although I felt this amount was adequate. I always find it easiest to mix meat with my KitchenAid Stand Mixer - it saves your arm the trouble. Also if you want a great new cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks has great recipes and beautiful pictures. It almost makes me want to ranch and have no cow experience whatsoever! I also shared this recipe at The Grocery Cart Challenge's Recipe Swap.

Our family doesn't eat ground beef so I have to cook with soy crumbles I can make anything except haven't sucessfully made meatballs yet lol. I'm wondering if this recipe would work, because of the addition of the oats. I will have to try this. I've been wanting to make meatball subs.
