Sweet and Sour Meatballs

The first recipe in my journal is a definite crowd pleaser! I make these often when guests are coming for the first time. They´re quick, easy and always go over in a BIG way. Whenever I ask our oldest what he would like to eat, his first response is always, "Meatballs with macaroni & cheese". You can whip up a single batch in about 20 minutes.

Tip: Make the sauce first and let it heat while making the meatballs.

1 to 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
3/4 cup rolled oats
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
Few grains of freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Combine all ingredients; mix well. Form into about 12 balls. Place in a casserole dish. Cover with sauce (see below). Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 30 minutes. Makes 6 servings, 2 large meatballs each.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/4 cup barbeque sauce (Seasons Harvest Legend sauces are my favorite)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Combine ingredients and blend thoroughly. Heat and pour over meatballs.
