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
cup seasoned breadcrumbs
2 eggs, lightly beaten
cup milk
cup finely diced Vidalia onion 
teaspoon each - salt and pepper

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

cup apple jelly 
cup spicy brown mustard
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!
