Country Meatballs

These are not the same thing as Italian meatballs. Don't get me wrong, I love them as well. These are southern style best served with a heaping pile of mashed potatoes. You make a sauce to go over them that is real easy. These are like little meatloaf meatballs. Little meatloaf meatballs....say that 5 x's fast.  These are not what I'd call Gourmet but sometimes you just need some good ol' comfort food. My kids (and spouse) love these so much that they are one of my go to meals when I want to ensure everyone will eat quietly. Well, as quiet as a house with three kids can be. If you really want to serve them with noodles, some buttered egg noodles would be delicious! By the way, they are cheap and easy to make! They also make a great appetizer.


1 pound Ground Beef
1/2 cups Oats
3/4 cup Milk
2 Tablespoons Very Finely Minced Onion
1 teaspoon Salt
Plenty Of Ground Black Pepper, to taste
1 cup All-Purpose Flour (coating For Frozen Meatballs)
Canola Oil
1 cup Ketchup
2 Tablespoons Sugar
