Easy Meatballs

I thought I would share my meatball recipe.  It’s very versatile.  You can freeze them, bake them or put them in the slow cooker.

What you will need:

1lb ground chuck (ground beef works too), 1 cup oats, 1 egg, 1/2 cup milk (you can used condensed milk too), 2 tablespoons dried onions (you can use fresh or you can add more to taste), 1 teaspoon garlic salt, 1 teaspoon chili powder, salt and pepper to taste.

1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup ketchup, dash garlic salt

Mix together meat, oats, eggs, milk and seasoning.  Form into balls.  Place the meatballs into either a crock pot or baking dish coated with non stick cooking spray.  (Additionally, you can put them in a freezer bag and freeze for later use.)

Mix together ketchup, brown sugar and garlic salt.  Coat the meatballs.  (You can also use regular BBQ sauce.)

Cook in a crock pot on low for 4-6 hours or in the over at 450 for 30-60 minutes.  (It depends on how thick you make the meatballs.)

Sometimes I make these up in the morning and put them in the crock pot in the refrigerator until I am hope in the afternoon if I know I’m going to be busy.  I also sometimes make these right before we leave for church on a Sunday morning and lunch is ready when we make it back home.

I have this in the crock pot to be served with baked potatoes (in a second crockpot) and plan to fix okra as well.

Quick Cake Mix Cookies

If you are like me, you are sometimes asked to bake something for an event.  (I have four different things I’m doing that for this weekend alone.)  You wonder how in the world you will juggle your job, homeschool and everything else you need to do.

This recipe is quick and easy (and yummy)!  It takes me less than 10 minutes to mix up two batches.
