4 lbs Lean hamburger
2/3 c. Ketchup
1 c. Onion, minced
2 c. Bread crumbs
1 tbsp Salt
1 tsp Ground pepper
2 tbsp Garlic, minced
Combine all the ingredients. Shape into meatballs (approximately 1.5” in diameter).
Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes.
Cooked meatballs can be served with sauce:
- Stove top - Heat the meatballs with sauce until the sauce is hot.
- Slowcooker - Cover the meatballs with sauce and cook for 4-8 hours.
Red Current Meatball Sauce
1 c. Red current jam
1 c. Ketchup
1-2 tbsp Vinegar
1 Onion, chopped small
Splash of Worcestershire sauce
Combine the jam and ketchup in saucepan and melt over medium heat. Stir regularly.
Add rest of ingredients once jam is melted. Cook until the onion is soft.
The meatballs are absolutely delicious. They are soft and full of flavours. They are great for meatball sandwiches or serve on rice. The red current meatball sauce is probably the best meatball sauce I've ever had. However, we often buy The Diana Sauces for convenience.
