Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


7-1/2 dozen

Yuletide buffet "grazers" stampede for these meatballs! The mouthwatering morsels go so fast, I often make several batches at once. Barbecue sauce adds a nice bite to the mildly seasoned ground pork.—Katie Koziolek, Hartland, Minnesota


  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 2 pounds ground pork
  • SAUCE:
  • 1-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke, optional


  1. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, bread crumbs, onion and salt. Crumble pork over mixture and mix well. Shape into 3/4-in. balls.
  2. Place meatballs on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°; drain.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine sauce ingredients. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add meatballs. Serve in a 5-qt. slow cooker or chafing dish.
