My daughters, ages 12 and 6, love my meatloaf! But when I want to give them something close to it, but different, these meatballs are just the thing!

  3. Place meatballs in shallow baking dish.
  4. Combine sauce ingredients.
  5. Pour over meat.
  6. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  7. Sauce should be caramelized, but not dry.

A real winner, these meatballs tasted delicious. The addition of the mustard made a big difference. I would reduce the sugar content though next time.

Very tasty meatballs. Incredibly easy prep & instructions - perfect for busy nights. I also found the sauce to be a bit too sweet - next time I will halve the sugar. However, these were definitely a success with my family and I would make them again. You are greatly missed, Silent Cricket.

I was a little skeptic using oatmeal in meatballs but these were delightful! I have placed almost every recipe from Silent Cricket to be made at a later time into my recipe box. Chef Martha had shared a great many wonderful recipes with us. She will be missed dearly. God has a special place for wonderful people and now she is in that place.
