2 pounds ground beef
1 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped onions
16 ounces apricot preserves or orange marmalade ( I used 1/2 orange & 1/2 pineapple )
16 ounces barbecue sauce ( I used KC Masterpiece Hot and Spicy )
I made the meatballs and put them in the crockpot. I then mixed the BBQ sauce and marmalades and poured over. I will crock on high 5 hours.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, onion and milk, just until thoroughly combined. Do not over mix. Form into 1-inch balls. Bake on a cookie sheet or in a shallow pan 15 to 20 minutes. ( I did not bake )
2. Pour barbecue sauce and preserves or marmalade into a slow cooker; mix well. Add meatballs and heat thoroughly. (Or place in a Dutch oven or other large pot, bring to a boil on the stove top, then reduce heat to low and simmer for a few minutes to allow flavors to blend.)
Makes 48 meatballs ( not here: I got 14-6 )
