Makes 6 servings


    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
    • 1 medium onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
    • 1 pound lean ground beef or ground bison
    • 1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 1 (15.5 ounce) can tomato sauce
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
    • Dash bottled hot pepper sauce (optional)


1. Heat oven to 350º F. Combine egg, bread crumbs, ¼ cup of the onion, and the oregano in a large mixing bowl. Add the ground meat and mix well.

2. Shape into 42 meatballs about ¾-inch in diameter. Arrange in a single layer in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until internal temperature is at least 160 °F. Drain well.

3. Meanwhile, cook remaining ¼ cup onion and the green pepper in hot oil in a large saucepan until vegetables are tender. Stir in tomato sauce, brown sugar, mustard, chili powder, black pepper, garlic salt, and if desired, hot pepper sauce. Bring to boiling.
