BBQ Meatballs

I love the Pioneer Woman's website and visit every couple of days. I think it's great that she is proud of who she is and not ashamed to post hearty, everyday kind of dinners. This is an adaptation of her BBQ Meatball recipe. Thanks PW! Randy went on a business trip the day after I fixed these and I ate meatballs all week. They were still good at the end of the week! :)

BBQ Meatballs

1 lb extra lean ground beef
1 lb lean ground turkey
3/4 c rolled oats
1 c. 1% milk
9 T minced onion, divided (half in the meat, half in the sauce)
1 1/2 t. salt
1 t. black pepper
1 1/2 c. ketchup
2 T. brown sugar
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 T. vinegar
1 t. liquid smoke

Preheat oven to 350. Combine all meatball ingredients in med bowl. Roll into med-small balls and place on cookie sheet. Place cookie sheet in freezer for 5-10 min. (approx 42 meatballs)Remove from freezer and immediately dredge in unseasoned flour.

Brown meatballs quickly in a drizzle of olive oil, place in baking dish. Combine all sauce ingredients and pour evenly over the top of the meatballs. Bake for 45 min.
