Sunday in the Kitchen - Meatballs with Barbecue Sauce

This recipe came from The Taste of Home Magazine (man, I miss that magazine) and it would always gets eaten up really quickly. It's not low carb due to the quick-cooking oats and the sauce but it's really good for those who just want something yummy and are not counting carbs! This is also slightly modified from the original recipe to the way I used to make it.

Ingredients:

Meatballs:
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 5 oz can evaporated milk
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 TBSP Onion Powder
1 TBSP Garlic Powder
1 Tsp Salt
1/4 Tsp pepper
1.5 lbs of ground beef

Sauce:
1 cup ketchup
3/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl combine the first 7 meatball ingredients. Break up the ground beef into it and mix well (I mix with my hands). Shape into 2 inch balls. Put meatballs on a greased cookie sheet and bake, uncovered, for 18-20 minutes until no pink is showing (I usually cut open one meatball to double check)

While the meatballs are baking, combine all of the sauce ingredients in a smaller bowl. You can combine and cook them in a sauce pan but I usually microwave them to make things easier. Pour the sauce over the meatballs (I spoon the sauce over each meatball individually so the sauce doesn't get wasted and every meatball is covered) and then bake the meatballs for another 10-12 minutes.

Enjoy! These are really good with mashed potatoes and this recipe makes 6 servings (but that can depend on how big you make the meatballs).
