Meatballs, made of meatloaf..meatloafballs? (Recipe & Pic)

So it’s time I share one of the ways to my hubby’s heart.  My meatloaf that happens to be shaped into balls and not at all loaves.  They cook faster.  They are almost “crunchy” on the outsides.  They are AWESOME!  This is so simple!

Meatloafballs a la justjmejones 

You’ll need:

  • 1 lb. ground sirloin
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups of ketchup
  • tbsp of A1
  • dash of salt
  • tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 sleeve of saltine crackers, crushed

In a medium sized bowl, add all ingredients and mix together.  Scoop out balls using an ice cream scoop to obtain the desired size (and please don’t worry, they are not meant to be perfect!).  I bake them on a rack on top of a cookie sheet.  (This way some of that fat drips right down to the pan and you don’t touch it!)  Cook for around 30 minutes at 425 degrees.  Note: I use tongs and turn mine over with about 5 minutes left to make sure they are “crisp” on the top and bottom.  These are not saucy meatballs, but more of a “crusted” meatball.  I add a little bit of ketchup to the tops of mine before serving and that’s it!  🙂
