Comfort Meatballs

This a recipe from The Pioneer Woman's cookbook. They were delicious and different. I just wished I had doubled the recipe so we had more left to freeze for later. She pictured them served with mashed potatoes, which seemed a little strange to me, but we went for it anyway and loved the combo.

1-½ pound Ground Beef
¾ cups Oats
1 cup Milk
3 Tablespoons Very Finely Minced Onion
1-½ teaspoon Salt
Plenty Of Ground Black Pepper, to taste
1 cup All-Purpose Flour
Canola Oil
1 cup Ketchup
2 Tablespoons Sugar
3 Tablespoons Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire
4-6 Tablespoons Onion (I used 6)
1 dash Tabasco

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all meatball ingredients. Roll into medium-small balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place sheet in freezer for five minutes. (I refrigerated for a few hours)
After 5 minutes, remove meatballs from freezer and immediately dredge in unseasoned flour.
Brown meatballs in canola oil until just brown. Place into a baking dish.
Combine all sauce ingredients. Pour over meatballs and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

So, So good! Big hit at home and we had lots leftover so we took some to work to share and everyone loved them, all of the remainder meatballs were finished off by the 21 year old! This recipe I'll keep around for a while.
