Easy Meatloaf Meatballs
By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
This week for Sunday Supper the focus is on back to school dinners.
I always think of back to school as a busier time, with so many things the kids have to do from extra-curricular activities to getting their homework done to getting to bed on time so they can wake fresh in the morning.
And parents know the bulk of the hawking over that falls on them. So to keep things running smoothly, easier dinners for the weekday are in order! Short, simple and sweet.
So I decided to share my meatballs version of my signature meatloaf, which takes the meatloaf and cooks it in half the time, keeping all the flavor.
I covered mine with a bit of barbecue sauce, but you could just as easily go for a tomato sauce or jarred gravy. And with the meatloaf and the bbq- I like to serve it with simple potatoes gratin, or perhaps something like mashed if you are using gravy. Side salads are always a pleasure or a plate of raw veggies and tomato slices like Mom always loved. With gardens still going that is always a good choice.
So I hope you enjoy!
Join me tomorrow when I share my recipe for Slow Cooker Butter Beans with Ham. My southern and midwestern recipes are always a hit, so you should be sure to like that one. I used my Instant Pot on it with the slow cooker setting. Paired up with a pan of corn bread, it is a real budget minded rib-sticking meal. I hope to see you then!
