Stock your freezer with these meatballs and you'll always have an appetizer on hand for unexpected guests. We even like to eat them as a main dish with rice or noodles on busy weeknights. —Anna Finley, Columbia, Missouri

Ingredients

  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 can (12 ounces) fat-free evaporated milk
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 3 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • SAUCE:
  • 2-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke, optional
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add beef; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 1-in. balls.
Place meatballs on greased racks in shallow baking pans. Bake 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Drain on paper towels.
In a Dutch oven, combine sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 2-3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add meatballs; heat through, stirring gently.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled meatball mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Microwave, covered, on high in a microwave-safe dish until heated through, gently stirring and adding a little water if necessary.

"The sauce was tasty, I didn't think it would make enough to cover all the meatballs, but it did. I liked the method for cooking the meatballs on a rack in the oven, will definitely be using this trick in the future."
