Favorite Food Fridays

I thought I would share some of our favorite recipes with everyone. From time to time I do once a month cooking and have a nice little stash of dinners in the deep freeze. It is a huge undertaking at the time, but it is always worth it later on when I don't have the time or energy to cook something.

This is one of our favorites and in fact it was dinner tonight. At first I wasn't really sure about making a homemade BBQ sauce. We have failed at this many times and I was a bit concerned, all the worry was for nothing though because it has a great flavor! This freezes nicely and since it is totally cooked, all you have to do is heat and eat!!!

BBQ Meatballs
2 lbs. lean hamburger or ground turkey
2 eggs
2 c. quick oatmeal
1 c. minced onion
1 c. milk (whole or cream)
1 tsp. cracked black pepper

Mix and make 72 walnut sized balls (any larger and sauce won't cook through). Place in flat pan in a single layer.

3 c. ketchup
2 c. brown sugar
3 tbsp. liquid smoke or Kitchen Bouquet
1 tsp. salt

Mix sauce over low heat and pour 1/2 of mixture or less over meatballs. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Add meatballs and remaining sauce to 1 gallon freezer bag and lay flat to freeze.

  1. I may just have to try this :) We use something similar but I never thought about freezing it.
