Makes 6 large meatballs
Bill writes: "Here's a recipe we do often from a cookbook by Phyllis Pellman Good and Rachel Thomas Pellman, 'From Amish and Mennonite Kitchens'. It is delicious and easy, and our teenage boys love it as much as we do."
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup cracker crumbs
- 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 cup catsup (ketchup)
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
Preheat oven to 400° F. Combine meat, egg, 3/4 cup crumbs, salt, pepper, and onion. Mix well. Mix together sugar, catsup, nutmeg, and mustard. Add half of this sauce to meat mixture. Mix well. Shape meat mixture into 6 balls and place in 3-inch muffin cups. Top balls with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with remaining crumbs. Bake for 30 minutes.
