A while back I came across a recipe for meatballs on The Pioneer Woman's blog.  I pinned it on my pinterest page for future reference.  We just so happened to have some ground beef in the fridge that needed to be cooked this evening, so I pulled out the recipe.  Normally when I think of meatballs I am thinking about the kind that goes with spaghetti in a marinara sauce.  But these are more like meatloaf.  Yum!  I got them ready and poured the sauce over  them, but then I just covered them in foil, so tomorrow all I have to do is pop them in the oven.  Here's hoping they turn out great!
Here is a picture of mine before putting them in the fridge, and the recipe from the blog (one minor change-I left out the tabasco):
