  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion diced
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup quick cook oatmeal
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
  • Cajun hot sauce or BBQ sauce * for dipping


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Using a tablespoon's worth of the meat at a time, form small balls (approximately 1" wide), then place each on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Bake the meatballs for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly through.
  • Serve with Cajun hot sauce (Tabasco, Louisiana Hot Sauce) or BBQ sauce for dipping.



We like Tabasco or Louisiana Hot Sauce to provide spicy tang, or opt for a molasses-based BBQ sauce to balance heat against earthy sweet.
