A number of years ago, probably in 1998 or 1999, the Amish Cook column ran a recipe for barbecued meatballs that included sweetened condensed milk as one of the ingredients.  I've lost the recipe and am desperately trying to find it.  Can anyone help me out?  Thanks!

Been looking...

I scanned through the recipes in the "Best of the Amish Cook" vol 1 and 2 and didn't run across it.  Hopefully Kevin can find it (if anyone can, he can!) because it sounds good for Super Bowl!

Re: Milk/Meatballs

I should think the recipe below might be done with the sweetened-condensed milk, if you altered the sugar am't [or not].    Another meatball one is the lazy one with frozen meatballs, & grape jelly in the sauce-----tasted one, but never made this & not sure what else is in the sauce.    CS


I obtained this recipe when I ate at an Amish home last June in Bird-in-hand.


2 lbs. ground beef

1 lb. bulk sausage

1 can (15oz.) evaporated milk

2 cups oatmeal (quick oats)

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 tsp. pepper

2 tsp. chili powder

2 eggs

3 tsp. salt

Mix all ingredients together.  Shape into balls.  Place in single layer in baking pan.


2 cups ketchup

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 tsp. liquid smoke

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Combine all ingredients and pour over meatballs.  Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.




CLPerry, I just wanted to let you know that I am working on your request.....I think I'll be able to dig it up, but it'll be a few more days! - Kevin
