Cheeseburger Meatballs

I think I first encountered this recipe on Facebook. It came up on my news feed via the Alberta Beef Facebook page. I needed an idea for something to take to the upcoming family Christmas get-together and potluck, so I decided to give it a whirl. Since I was taking the meatballs as a main dish, instead of as an appetizer (as shown in the video), I made a BBQ sauce gravy to go over the meat balls. This did make them go soggy and crumble over time, so I would suggest keeping the meatballs separate from any sauce. Also, the next time I make them, I think I'll use 2 eggs, instead of one, just to help them stay together a bit better.


1½ lb. ground beef

1 egg

3 T. ketchup

1 T. dijon mustard

3 T. sweet relish

½ c. bread crumbs

2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

1 T. worcestershire sauce

Thousand Island dressing for dipping (Optional)


Preheat the oven to 400º.

Add all the ingredients except the dressing to a large bowl and mix well. Roll into meatballs roughly the size of a golf ball. You can use a 1½ T. scoop to make them even.

Place the meatballs on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

Serve with Thousand Island dressing for dipping.
