Barbecue Meatballs

Whether you want a party snack or are making spaghetti and meatballs, this barbecue meatballs recipe not only tastes great but it’s so easy to make you’ll never buy pre-made meatballs again.


  • 2 pounds burger or 1 pound beef burger plus 1/2 pound each ground pork and veal
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons Clutch Coffee Herb Rub or Coffee Herb Blend seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Clutch Coffee Barbecue Sauce (see option below)

Thoroughly mix all ingredients, roll into 1 inch balls, place on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake at 350 degrees ’til cooked through, about 12 minutes. If you’re using the meatballs with pasta then that’s it. If you are making larger meatballs then you will need to add cooking time.

Option: If you’re using the meatballs as a party appetizer, heat about a cup of Clutch Coffee Barbecue Sauce in a pan until warm while the meatballs in the oven. Once the meatballs are finished cooking, toss them with the warm barbecue sauce to coat evenly. Serve in a bowl with toothpicks.

Makes about 50 meatballs.
