This is the recipe I've been using recently:

3 lb. ground meat (beef, turkey, pork combination)
3/4 to 1 C. old fashioned Oatmeal
1 chopped onion
4 cloves of minced garlic
1 celery stalk minced
2 eggs
1 15oz. can diced tomatoes
1 pkg lipton beefy onion soup mix (dry)
several dashes of Worchestershire Sauce
Basil and Italian Seasoning
Salt and Pepper

Mix well and roll into small balls.  Cook on stovetop in marinara/spaghetti sauce over medium to low heat for atleast 30 mins, occasionally stir gently so meatballs don't break up.

The meatballs are tender from the oatmeal and from being cooked in the sauce.

Good luck ~

Crockpot Sweet & Sour Meatballs

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup minced onion

1 egg

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 cups condensed beef broth

Mix together ground chuck, salt, pepper, oatmeal, onion and egg and make into balls about 1 inch around.† Put them in the bottom of the crockpot.† Do not brown!† Mix together the brown sugar, lemon juice and broth to make a sauce and pour over the meatballs.† Cook on high for 4 hours.

(Note: These can be made ahead of time and freeze well raw in the sauce.† Just add an hour to the cooking time after putting them in the crockpot frozen.)

Easiest Meatball recipe I've ever used.† And they freeze up really well.

2 lbs. ground beef, 1pkg(6oz)†Stove Top Stuffing Mix for Chicken (I use store brand), 1-1/4 cups water, 2 eggs

Heat oven 400*

Line 2 (15x10x1") pans with foil:† spray with cooking spray. (I use my pampered chef baking sheet without foil or spray)

Mix ingredients until blended: shape into 32(1-1/2") balls,

Place 16 meatballs in each pan. Bake 16-18 minutes or until done(160*F)

Loosely pack cooled meatballs in freezer bags. Lay bags flat in freezer so meatballs freeze individually.† Store up to 3 months.

Thaw in refrigerator serveral hours or overnight before using.
