  • Cooking WTF Style- Meatballs
    I have been trying to venture out some & cook a few "new" recipes instead of our tried & true recipes.
    Ground beef is something I hardly EVER cook.  While a lot of people use it for tacos I use WTF chorizo or some people use it in spaghetti/lasagna I use WTF Hot Italian or Zesty Italian sausage.
    I do use it for meatloaf but the kids claim they don't like meatloaf so I decided to modify the meatloaf recipe into meatballs....tricky of me!!
    So the WTF version of BBQ Meatballs starts with a package of WTF ground beef.

    We also need cracker crumbs, milk, eggs & salt.
    If you want you can make your own BBQ be my guest.  I happened to have some Sweet Baby Rays in the pantry so I cheated this time & used that instead.
    Here is the final product.  It's hard to take a good picture of meatballs so this is an oven shot!!
    BBQ Meatballs
    1-lb. ground beef
    1 cup cracker crumbs
    1/4 cup milk
    2 eggs
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    *BBQ Sauce*
    1-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    2-Mix ground beef, cracker crumbs, milk, eggs & salt in a large bowl.  Roll out meatballs & place on baking sheet with a rim.  Pour BBQ sauce over meatballs.
    3- Bake for 45-minutes or until meatballs are no longer pink in the center.
