    Meatballs:

    1 lb. lean ground beef
    1 egg or 1/4 cup egg beaters
    1/2 cup soft breadcrumbs
    1/4 cup skim milk
    1/3 cup chopped onions (or 1 T minced dried onions)
    1/2 tsp. Worchestershire Sauce

    Combine all ingredients and mix well. Form into 16 meatballs (or 48 small if using for appetizers) and brown in a skillet sprayed with Pam. Place in a 2 1/2 quart baking dish.

    Sauce:

    1/2 cup ketchup
    1/2 cup chopped onion (or 2 Tbsp. minced dried))
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    1/3 cup cider vinegar
    1/8 tsp. pepper

    Combine, mix well and pour over meatballs, turning to coat.

    Bake uncovered at 350* for 50 -60 minutes

    Yield: 16 large - 1 meatball with sauce = 2 points
    (or if making 48 small - 3 meatballs = 2 points)

    Nice with mashed or baked potatoes, green veggie and salad.

    Thanks Judy!

    I tried these- yummy! I found them a bit sweet so next time I will reduce the amount of sugar that I use- the ketchup is sweet on it's own so I'll probably only use about a tablespoon of brown sugar.

    Thanks again!

    oops...I forgot to reply to your question, I think that means breadcrumbs that are made with regular type (sliced) bread. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I'm sorry it took me so long to answer, but I just now noticed your question about the breadcrumbs. Yes, I make my own from the leftover heels and bread that is getting stale. I have even made crumbs out of day old rolls Just whirl in the food processor, put in a plastic bag and keep in the freezer. They are great for meatloaf too!
