Tasty Tuesday: BBQ Meatballs

We are having BBQ Meatballs for dinner tonight. It's a family favorite.
I grabbed the recipe from another Army wife when my husband was in the Army. She brought me the meatballs while my husband was deployed. When my friend shared the recipe with me, my boys were finicky eaters. I enjoyed them for days. They were that good. (Those of you that know me know that I am not a big left-over fan.) Now all of my boys, plus my husband and my daughter, love the meatballs. I serve them over rice.

Grandma's BBQ Meatballs

1 1/2 -2 lbs ground turkey (or turkey/beef mixture) [I use half ground turkey/half ground beef]
2-3 cups bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cup milk
4 T. minced onion
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/8 tsp sage
sliced onion

1. Mix all together
2. Shape into meatballs.
3. Place into greased pan w/slices of onion on top.
4. Pour BBQ sauce over all
5. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

Barbeque Sauce
I double this recipe because we like extra sauce.

1/2 cup Ketchup
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp chili powder [I add a bit more]
1/2 tsp mustard
1 T. brown sugar
1 cup water.

Can I just use the frozen meatballs and add your sauce? They sound delish, but I have frozen meatballs in the freezer right now, could I cheat?
