When it’s cold and grey outdoors my free oven bbq recipe for meatballs in barbecue sauce will warm the cockles of your heart!
This barbecue meatballs recipe really makes for a top notch meaty taste and is coupled with what can only be described as the classic barbecue sauce recipe.

There is gluten in the sausage meat, breadcrumbs and flour. The sauce also contains mustard, fish and gluten again, the latter two allergens are to be found in the Worcestershire sauce.
Flour for coating the barbecue meatballs and oil for frying
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C, 350°F or gas mark 4.
Throw all the meatball ingredients into a mixing bowl and set to it with your hands to thoroughly mix everything together. Don’t be afraid to get your fingers in and really give it a good scrunch!
Once mixed form your meatballs ready for flouring and frying.
Roll the meatballs in the flour and move them around in the frying pan until browned all over. When done, set to one side.
For the barbecue sauce recipe, fry the onion in the oil for 3-4 minutes until translucent, then add the tomato purée and fry for another minute. Then add the remainder of the ingredients and stir until thoroughly mixed.
Transfer the barbecue meatballs to a casserole, pour over the barbecue sauce and place in the oven for 60 minutes.
