This is Photoremedy readers’ lucky day. Today, Mary (Gilstrap) let me capture the before and after photos of her should-be-famous meatballs.
More importantly–for our readers–she’s letting me share the recipe.
Mary’s Mad Meatballs
Meatballs: 1.5 pounds of ground beef, 1 chopped medium sweet onion, 1.25 cups of spicy hot vegetable juice (we prefer V8 brand), 1 egg, 1 package of dry onion soup mix, .75 cup of quick oatmeal. Mix all of the ingredients together; add the dry oatmeal last after all of the other meatball ingredients have been combined. Form into meatballs and place in muffin tins as the above shows. By cooking in muffin tins, the chef can guarantee each meatball gets its fair share of the delicious sauce.
Sauce: .66 cups of ketchup, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1.5 tablespoons of prepared mustard, ground black and ground cayenne pepper to taste. Mix all of the ingredients together, and pour on top of the meatballs as the above shows. Bake for approximately 40 minutes (or until done) at 325 degrees.
Why have I dubbed them mad meatballs? Because you’ll be really mad if you are denied the opportunity to experience more than one. Enjoy!
