Great Balls of Fire Meatballs



GREAT BALLS of FIRE MEATBALLS
Famous Dave's Recipe

Meatballs
3 pounds ground beef
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 cups Ritz cracker crumbs
1/2 cup finely diced onion
1/3 cup finely diced green pepper (optional)
1/3 cup finely grated carrot
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons Famous Dave’s Steak seasoning
1 teaspoon Maggi Seasoning
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Famous Dave’s BBQ sauce

Sauce
1 (20 oz) bottle Famous Dave’s BBQ sauce
2 (10 oz) bottles Polaner apricot preserves
1/3 cup finely diced onion
1/3 cup finely diced jalapeno
1/2 teaspoon cayenne

Combine all ingredients for meatballs in a bowl. Mix thoroughly. Use a small ice cream scoop to form balls, dipping in cold water as needed so meatball mixture won’t stick. Place meatballs on a sheet pan lined with baking parchment paper. Bake 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Combine sauce ingredients in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until vegetables are tender. Pour over meatballs.
