BBQ Beef and Sausage Meatballs

This is great for parties, and you can make it ahead of time!

3 Pounds lean Ground Beef

1/2  Pound Gluten Free Pork Sausage ( I used the mildly seasoned, but you prefer you can use spicey sausage)

1- 8oz. Block of Cream Cheese (softened)

2 Teaspoons Gluten Free Season Salt

1 Teaspoon Gluten Free pure Garlic Powder

1/2 Cup Gluten Free Barbeque sauce ( I used Sweet Baby Ray’s original)

Topping: 1-2 cups of more Gluten free Barbeque sauce, depending on how much sauce you prefer.

Preheat oven to 375*

Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and dive in with your hands. ( you should wear gloves, it gets a little messy!) To mix well, it will take awhile. Then when all ingredients are incorporated, roll into balls or use a 1 ½ inch scoop. Place each ball onto a greased sheet pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until firm and browned. Remove from oven and place meatballs into a covered storage container, (also draining off any grease)and refrigerate until ready to serve. (These can be made several days ahead of time, if refrigerated)

Top with more barbeque sauce when ready to reheat and serve.  Place back onto sheet pan and brush with more barbeque sauce onto each ball and bake at 400* for 8 minutes, or until well coated. Remove from oven and serve. I like to put a toothpick into each BBQ ball to serve.

This will make about 3 dozen meatballs. Depending on how big you make them.
