Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Here is a yummie recipe that I make each New Years Eve. I suppose that has become a tradition for our family and occasionally I'll make them for a party. They are time intensive, but really really good! I think this recipe originally came from Southern Living.

3/4 lb ground beef, lean
3/4 lb ground turkey
1 small onion, minced
1/4 c egg substitute (or 1 whole egg)
1/2 c Italian breadcrumbs

3/4 c ketchup
1/3 c white vinegar
1/4 c Worcestershire
3 T sugar
2 t dry mustard

Combine first 5 ingredients, shape into 1 inch balls. Brown meatball in batches on med-high in large non-stick skillet. Remove meatball and wipe skillet clean.
Stir together ketchup and remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then add meatballs, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Yields about 3 1/2 dozen super yummie meatballs. I usually then transfer them to a small crockpot on low to keep them hot while serving.
