Hawaiian Meatballs

I am Amanda Joy from Joy in the Jumble… And I am happy to be here sharing this yummy recipe.

I love the flavors of this meal and how filling it is.

The touch of sweet with the salty… Mmmmm!It makes for great leftovers too:)

Hawaiian Meatballs over Rice

Yields approx. 70 meatballs

1 can Evaporated Milk
3 lbs Ground Turkey or Hamburger
1/2 t. Garlic Salt
2 cups Oatmeal
2 Eggs
1/2 cup Onion, finely chopped
1 t. Pepper
2 t. Salt


2 cups Ketchup
2 cups Brown Sugar
1 T. Liquid Smoke
1/2 t. Garlic Salt
1/2 cup Onion, finely chopped
Green Onion, chopped for garnish (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the meatball ingredients well and shape into 1- 1 1/2 inch balls.
I use a 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop.
For the sauce, mix all the ingredients together in a pot and heat it until it boils.
Pour a 1/4 cup of sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish, and spread around.
Place the meatballs in rows, then pour the rest of the sauce on top.
Bake uncovered for 45-60 minutes.
If using a rice cooker, we do half white basmati, and half brown rice…
Started at about the time we put the meatballs in the oven.
This way they are done at roughly the same time.
Scoop, Serve, and Enjoy:)

    70 meatballs don't fit in a dish unless you stack them. Do stack them in top of each other?

    Great recipe! My husband thought they were delicious and he is so picky! I halved the recipe and was glad I did. I have a family of four and we had plenty of leftovers. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Will be making again for sure. I was wondering how the oats would be, they added great texture and you couldn’t even really tell they were in there.
