Kids in the Kitchen

I'm so excited with the girls' progress in the kitchen.  Mabel is loving her beginners stage.  Ester is working on mastering her baking.  Sally has graduated from baking and has moved onto cooking.

Sally has been asking for a meatball dinner.  I love  I usually look for a dish that has loads of good reviews. 

I found the following recipe and it was an  easy enough recipe that Sally made it all by herself! 

Hazel's Meatballs

Absolutely delicious!

2 eggs
1 small onion, minced
2 pounds of ground beef
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cracker crumbs **I substituted 1 cup of Progresso brand bread crumbs**
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup prepared yellow mustard
1/2 cup white vinegar
3/4 cup brown sugar

1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2.  Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl.  Add the onion, beef,  milk, and salt; mix well.  Sprinkle in the bread crumbs and mix until evenly combined.  Form the mixture into 40 meatballs and place into a 9x13 inch baking dish; set aside.  Whisk the ketchup, mustard, vinegar, and sugar in a bowl; pour over the meatballs.

3.  Bake in the preheated oven - uncovered - until the meatballs are no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour.

Servings: 8


  1. Great job! That dinner looks amazingly delicious.

    I have just started to loosen up and let the boys help in the kitchen (been saving some pics for a post too! :)) and it has worked well. Their favorite is anything to do with chopping and cutting- using a sharp weapon makes them happy.

  2. Isn't it great when the kids start learning to cook?

  3. It's a valuable thing that our daughters learn domestic activities. like cooking, and sewing, etc. the meatballs look delicious. the whole dinner loves inviting.

  4. The meatballs look great! Since mine are usually store bought I will have to give this recipe a try, I would much prefer to make my own. Good work Sally!
