Cocktail Sausage Meatballs
This is good for just about any kind of social function. Entertaining at home or for a potluck. I know I don’t need another meatball recipe on my blog, but my husband insisted I put it on.
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 pound bulk sausage (I used mild)
- 1/4 pound lean ground beef (I used 1/3 lb.)
- 1/2 cup finely crushed soda crackers
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
Combine egg, sausage, ground beef, crackers, milk, and sage until well mixed. Shape into meatballs and brown in a small amount of oil in a large pot. (Or, like I did, put into a pan and bake 400 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes until brown.) Drain the meatballs and place in a baking dish. Combine water, ketchup, soy sauce, brown sugar, and barbecue sauce in a bowl. Stir until well blended. Pour sauce over meatballs and bake 30 minutes at 325 degrees.
Serves 8 to 12.
