The Pantry Challenge, day 4

(See here for more info about The Pantry Challenge.)

Tonight we had BBQ meatballs, corn, and leftover Italian Style Biscuits. (I've been told my biscuits are akin to Red Lobster biscuits!). Emily had rice cereal and homemade squash.

BBQ Meatballs
1 lb ground meat
2 t dry chopped onion
1/4 C evaporated milk
1/6 t garlic powder
1/3 C oatmeal
2/3 t salt
1/3 C (11) saltine cracker crumbs
1/6 t pepper
1 egg white
2/3 t chili powder

Combine all ingredients; mixture will be soft. Shape into 2 T-sized balls for dinner; 1 T-sized for appetizers.

1 C ketchup
1/4 t liquid smoke
1/2 C brown sugar
1 1/2 T dry chopped onion
1/4 t garlic powder

Combine and stir until sugar dissolves.

To cook: Place meatballs in 8x8 pan. Pour on sauce. Bake at 350° for 20-30 minutes until bubbly.

Makes 20 large or 35 small

Italian Style Biscuits
1 C bisquick
1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 C cold water

2 t butter, melted
1/4 t dried parsley
1/8 t garlic powder
1/8 t Italian seasoning

In a small bowl, combine the bisquick and cheese. Stir in water until a soft dough forms; stir 30 seconds more. Drop dough into six mounds 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 450E for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

In a small bowl, combine the butter, parsley, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Brush over warm biscuits. Serve warm. Makes 6.
