Game Night 2

So we are going to a game night at another couples place tonight. We were told it would be appetizers and italian.

We decided to make the following appetizers. Photos coming. I made Anthony take some :)

BBQ Meatballs (no I do not do the grape jelly thing)
1 pound ground meat
1/3 cup chopped onion (which we ended up sauteing with some garlic first)
1/2 cup italian bread crumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 egg
1/4 cup milk

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients and form bite sized balls. Bake for about 10 -12 minutes. We put foil on a sheet pan and bake them on that.

BBQ sauce
2 cups Heinz chili sauce (2 bottles)
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons dry mustard
3 tablespoons chopped onion
2 cloves garlic
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
2 drops Tabasco sauce
2 tablspoons butter
2 bay leaves

Mix all together in a saucepan and simmer for an hour. After simmering take out the bay leaves. (I throw the sauce in the crockpot and flip it on high because I put the meatballs in there and keep the pot on while people are eating). Add the meatballs to sauce and bake in a covered casserole dish for an hour.
