Homemade Meatballs

My family love when I make my meatballs for supper. I’m not a big measurer. I kind of just throw things together, but I’ll do my best to guesstimate the amounts here!

2 pounds ground beef or turkey

1 cup breadcrumbs

1/2 cup of milk

1 egg

BBQ sauce (our favorite is “Sweet Baby Rays”)

Grape jelly

Mix the ground beef, bread crumbs, milk, and egg in a bowl. Shape into round meatballs. I usually make my meatballs pretty small, but you can do them however size you like. Place your meatballs in a large baking dish. Mix equal parts grape jelly and BBQ sauce. I’d say it’s about 1/2 cup grape jelly and 1/2 cup BBQ sauce. Pour your jelly and BBQ sauce mixture over meatballs. Bake at 350 for about an hour.

I’m making mashed potatoes, to go with. I peel my potatoes, boil them, mash them with a hefty amount of butter and some milk. I also like to throw in some cream cheese. It makes your mashed potatoes sooo yummy!

I also had some bread dough I shaped into small rolls and let rise, this afternoon. I’m going to make that into our dinner rolls.

This is tonight’s supper, at our house 😊

  1. Thanks for this. I would never have thought of putting grape jam with bbq sauce. I am going to try this. I do mine with grated apple and a whole lot of other stuff. I love how you share the everyday with us. This is great cooking that is simple and easy to follow. With the cost of living going up so much, these recipes really help. So many people don’t have the knowledge or time to cook from scratch. You are inspiring me to re discover my joy in cooking again.
