#10DaysofTailgate: Ketchup & Mustard Glazed Meatballs


A couple of years ago, we discovered 'mustard grilled' burgers on In'N'Out's secret menu. Not being in the In'N'Out's kitchen, I can only guess as to what they do with the mustard. But I guessed that it probably had to do with brushing the meat with mustard while it cooked. Whatever they do, it adds something amazing to an already good burger.

So, for today's #10DaysofTailgate post, I bring you: mustard and ketchup glazed meatballs. Jalapeño Mustard and Date Ketchup. Yep, these are fancy.

Mustard and ketchup are integral part of a tailgate party and I love that El Diablo Hot & Spicy Mustard and Not Ketchup got into the game by sponsoring our event.*

Thank you!!


Ingredients
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 T Not Ketchup's Smoky Date + more for brushing on while cooking
  • 1 T El Diablo Hot & Spicy Mustard's Jalapeno + more for brushing on while cooking
  • freshly ground sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • splash of olive oil
  • buns or toothpicks for serving

Procedure 
Preheat the oven to 375°. Combine all of the ingredients - except the buns - in a large  mixing bowl. With moist hands, shape meat mixture into tablespoon-sized meatballs. Arrange meatballs in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan lined with parchment paper. Brush half of them with ketchup and the other half with mustard.

Bake meatballs at 375° for 35 minutes or until done. Brush on another layer of sauce and return them to the oven for 5 minutes. 


Serve on a bun for a main dish or with toothpicks for appetizers.

  1. The In"N"Out mustard technique suits these meatballs to a "T" (T for touchdown, of course)
