Who Dey Meatballs

Back to Beef

from Jason a Bengals Tailgater

A game day staple, these meatballs are easy to prepare ahead.  Who dey think gonna beat them meatballs?  Nooooobody!

1 lb. Mild pork sausage
1 lb. Lean ground beef
½ cup seasoned breadcrumbs
2 eggs, lightly beaten
¼ cup milk
½ cup finely diced Vidalia onion 
½ teaspoon each - salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients and shape into 1 ½ inch balls. Place on a lightly greased jelly roll pan or cookie sheet. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes, turning after 15 minutes.

½ cup apple jelly 
¼ cup spicy brown mustard
¼ cup whiskey (I use Canadian Club)
1 tsp each- Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce

Combine sauce ingredients in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Cook for one minute, then add meatballs and cook for 5 more minutes, stirring to make sure they all get coated.

Here's a Tip: I find the best way to store these is in a disposable foil casserole dish (about $1-2 dollars at the grocery store).  You can put them in the fridge overnight, then just toss the foil dish right on the grill on Sunday.  They reheat in about 5 or 10 minutes. Serve with pretzel sticks (tastier than toothpicks, and no splinters!).  Now you're ready to cheer the Bengals on to victory. WHO DEY!
