Day 42 – BBQ Meatballs

5 Aug

I’ve been making this recipe for well over 20 years. The first time I remember making these was for a Superbowl party hosted by my friend Jocelyn, at her parents house when we were still young twenty somethings. In fact, I might have been 19. They went over well. I’ve been asked for the recipe every time I take them somewhere. Tonight, I made them for my family and having them for supper was the most exciting thing to happen at our house today.wpid-2014-08-05-19.18.00.jpg.jpeg

I used 2 lbs. of ground beef today and did not adjust the rest of the recipe and they turned out beautifully.wpid-2014-08-05-19.19.49.jpg.jpeg

The recipe says to make them a little bigger than a golf ball. If you made them smaller I would probably cook them less or they would dry out, but I always follow the recipe in terms of the size of the meatball. I would say 3-4 of these is a generous serving.


The sauce is sweet to taste before cooking, but these really are a great savory meatball.


Aren’t these beautiful? They tasted even better than they look. There are a few leftover and Glenn is looking forward to taking them for lunch tomorrow, if Seldon doesn’t get to them first.

      Hi Joanna, Thanks for the invite, but my blog isn’t really a food blog. I blog about everything and sometimes that involves food. I blog mostly for myself and have no desire to have my blog at the top of any list. Thanks for the compliment.
