Grandma's Meatballs

These meatballs are by no means Italian so don't even think that way. These are my Grandma's version of meatballs and I love them both dearly. This is comfort food. These are made by all cooks in my Mom's family and are eaten by all. They make a lot so they are good for big dinners or freezing half, like I usually do. Plus they are requested by middle daughter every week even though we only have them occasionally, poor Jenna :)

3 lbs. ground beef
2 eggs
1 TBS minced onion
2 cups oats
1 lg. can PET evaporated milk
2 TBS chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Mix everything together and form into large meatballs. Put into 9x13 casserole (no need to grease) or split between two 8x8 dishes. Top with sauce, recipes to follow. Makes approx 2 dozen meatballs.

2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 TBS minced onion
2 TBS liquid smoke

Bring sauce ingredients to boil and pour over meatballs before baking for 1 hour.
