These are my kids’ FAVORITE meal! When I want to get them home? I text them what’s for dinner! Mama Mac Meatballs!
Ingredients: 3 eggs, 1 medicum onion, 1-1/2 cups dry bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 pounds ground sirloin, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.
Sauce: 3-1/2 cups of tomato juice, 1 cup packed brown sugar, 10 gingersnap cookies, 1/4 cup white vinegar, 1 teaspoon onion salt.
In a bowl, combine eggs, onion, bread crumbs, and salt. Crumble beef over the mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-1/2 inch balls. In a large skillet, brown the meatballs in batches in the oil. Transfer then, to a 13x9x2 baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Tip: If you let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes, the cookies will dissolve on their own and you will not need to crush them! Pour this mixture over the meatballs. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink.
- Our FAVORITE sides to this are mashed red potatoes, cole slaw, carrots, or broccoli! Enjoy!
