Sweet ‘n Saucy Meatballs

These meatballs are sweet but so yummy! This recipe is perfect for kids because it involves mixing the meatballs with your hands!

1 lb. lean ground beef

1 egg

1/2 c. cracker crumbs

1 1/2 c. water

1 1/4 c. ketchup

1 c. sugar

In a bowl, combine beef and egg. Sprinkle with oats and mix with fingers. Shape into 1 1/2 inch balls. Place in a lightly greased baking dish.

In a separate bowl, combine water, ketchup and sugar. Pour over meatballs (they will be completely covered with sauce and look soupy). Bake uncovered, at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. They will still be soupy when done but you can spoon the meatballs out and scoop the sauce over them. I also like to serve mine with a side of rice because the sauce is delicious! Enjoy!
