Country Bob's Sweet & Savory Meatballs FOR TWO recipe

Every day I'm in the kitchen, I feel more and more confident in my abilities as a kick butt home cook. I'm not a fancy cook, but I like to experiment and learn new techniques. I don't have access to worldly ingredients, but I use as much real food as possible. And, while I don't have a large family to cook for on a daily basis, I have managed to adapt my favorite dishes into a convenient and manageable size for two people.

I think learning to cook for one to two people is really important. It's economical, it's frugal, it's efficient, and most importantly: It prevents my husband from eating leftovers for lunch for 10.348 days.

Today I partnered up with Country Bob's and adapted my mother's family-famous meatball recipe to accommodate two people with healthy appetites. Or three people with normal appetites. Or four people who eat like dainty little birds.

Without further ado, let's talk 'balls, shall we?
You'll need:
1 pound of ground beef
1 egg
1/4 c. of bread crumbs
1/4 c. milk
1 t. seasoned salt
1 t. ground pepper
1/4 c. Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce + 1/4 c. for glazing

1. Combine all ingredients (except the extra 1/4 c. of sauce for glazing) in a large bowl with your hands.

2. Then, roll the mixture into about 1.5 to 2 inch balls. You can use a scoop if you want perfectly sized meatballs. Or, you can just eyeball it and be a reckless badass. Be reckless. I know you have it in ya.

3. Preheat your oven to 350*. Don't forget. And don't forget to take your pizza stone out of the oven either.

4. Heat up a big ol' cast iron skillet and swoosh in a bit of olive oil.

5. When the pan is hot, toss in the meatballs and brown two sides.

At this point, feel free to hang your head over the pan and breathe in the deep, saucy scents of the cooking meatballs.

Call it a meatball facial, if you will. That's right, take it all in.

6. Transfer the meatballs to a wire rack on a cookie sheet. The wire rack is important, you don't want your 'balls rolling around in grease.

7. Lastly, take your 1/4 c. of Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce and glaze the tops and sides of the meatballs with a brush.

8. Bake the meatballs at 350* for about 20-30 minutes, depending on how long you browned them in the skillet.

These meatballs were perfectly moist. It's important not to add too many dry ingredients, like bread crumbs, to your mixture. And, mix in a little Country Bob's with the mixture and glaze it on top. The flavor is sweet and savory, and worth every little bite.
