meatballs from scratch vs frozen meatballs

We often use frozen meatballs in recipes. They are convenient and so easy to use. But the flavor of homemade meatballs cannot be beat.

Pre packaged frozen meatballs don’t even compare to a good homemade meatball.

We have found that homemade meatballs are juicier and more flavorful than pre-packaged store bought meatballs.

It’s totally worth a few extra minutes of your time to make these meatballs from scratch rather than use the store bought ones.

how to make Cheesy BBQ Meatballs

Some regular household ingredients are all you need for this simple and delicious meatball recipe.

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees. While oven is warming, mix together the diced tomatoes, 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce, and onion powder in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.

  • Cover a cookie sheet with foil and lightly spray with non stick cooking spray.
  • In a medium sized bowl combine the meat, egg, crackers, cheese, and remaining barbecue sauce until blended.
  • Roll hamburger into 1 inch balls and place on prepared cookie sheet.

  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until done.

  • While the meatballs are cooking, place tomato/bbq sauce mixture in a saucepan and heat over med/low heat until it barely starts to boil. Stir well.
  • Place cooked meatballs over a bed of rice or mashed potatoes. Pour bbq mixture over the top.
  • You can also place the meatball and bbq mixture in a slow cooker that is on LOW heat. This is a great way to serve cheesy bbq meatballs at a party.

  • This is the ideal party food or great for dinner. Our kids loved slow cooker meatballs with bbq sauce.
