This is one of the simplest and tastiest meatballs recipes I have ever read. I got a great deal on the meat (see above) and I had everything else on hand (which I believe is a first). Her food reminds me of my mom’s – simple, 50’s style cooking. Definitely great comfort food.
The recipe is simple:
Mix beef with onions, quick oats, milk and salt and pepper.
Make into balls.
Let set for 30 mins.
Coat in flour and than fry to brown.
Mix ingredients of bbq sauce on top (ketchup, vinegar, sugar etc).
Once balls are brown, bake for 20 mins with sauce.
Eat and enjoy.
Next time, I would definitely double the recipe and make this for a potluck or dinner party.
I really enjoyed using this cookbook. There are step-by-step pictures that made the whole experience so much easier than a normal cookbook. The food tasted like it had been made many times before by Ree Drummond and that it was made with love.
