Barbecue MeatballsMake a batch of meatballs. You can find my favorite recipe here.
Place meatballs in the bottom of a 9 x13 casserole dish and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and drain grease.
* If you are using frozen meatballs either defrost them in the fridge or bake for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees before pouring the sauce over.
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar (optional: I just love the flavor)
1/4 tsp. liquid smoke (I did not have this and it was not missed.)
Bring to a boil and then simmer for 2 minutes. Pour over the meatballs. You may need to stir a bit to get them meatballs covered in the sauce.
Return to oven and bake 10-12 more minutes.
