“These meatballs have been in my family for generations. The barbeque sauce adds a special kick! I serve these every Sunday during football season and every week they disappear!”

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, eggs, oatmeal, onion, Cheddar cheese, ketchup, salt, and pepper using your hands. Form into tiny meatballs about 1 inch wide.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the meatballs, and cook, turning frequently, until browned, about 10 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the meatballs to a baking dish. Cover with barbeque sauce.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheat oven, until sauce is thick and meatballs are cooked through. Serve hot.

I absolutely loved these, as did my husband. I used 2 parts BBQ sauce and 1 part HP Steak Sauce, gave them that extra bit of tang. I also used cracker crumbs instead of oatmeal,they held together great!! Will definitely make these again!!



These were good, but obviously that would depend a lot on the sauce you choose. I used bread crumbs instead of oatmeal to bind after reading reviews and the meatballs seemed to hold up okay. Thanks for the recipe!



These were good. I used fresh onion instead of dried onion & salt & pepper to taste. The meatballs didn't hold their shape very well, I would use more oats & maybe some milk. I halved the recipe & forgot to use less sauce, so they were a little too saucy. Overall, I liked them and will try them again.
