I can always rely on these easy-to-make meatballs to feed my hungry family in a hurry. The simple yet savory sauce is made with just two ingredients I always have on hand, and it keeps the meatballs moist and tender.—Dr. L. M. Walton, Farmerville, Louisiana


  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1-1/3 cups ketchup
  • 2 cups ginger ale
  • Hot cooked rice


  1. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Add beef; mix well. Shape into 1-1/4-in. balls. In a Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium heat, bring ketchup and ginger ale to a boil. Reduce heat. Add meatballs; cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Serve over rice.
