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.

I just love so many of your recipes! I have “saved” so many to my Recipe File. I’m a retired widow so I just cook for myself, but I love how your recipes are so easy to decrease in half and they still come out so full of flavor and home style comfort. Thank you for blogging and sharing your wonderful recipes!
