Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Garfield Recipes with Cattitude Cookbook Review

Meow! I always think of lasagna when I think of Garfield the cat. His favorite foods are clearly pasta, lotsa lasagna and pizza! Gooseberry Patch created a cookbook with over 230 recipes just to featured Garfield's favorite recipes!
I'm an Early Bird Reviewer for Gooseberry Patch. I love getting early sneak peeks at their cookbooks before they are for sale! This allows me to post a review of some of their recipes and offer one as a giveaway to one of you!

Chef's Surprise Tangy Meatballs (sub)

2 lb ground beef
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 t. salt
3/4 c. quick-cooking oats, uncooked
1 1/3 c. chili sauce, divided
1/2 c. grape jelly

In a large bowl, combine beef, eggs, salt, oats and 1/3 c. chili sauce. Mix well with your hands; form into one-inch balls. Place in an ungreased shallow 13"x9" baking pan. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 15-17 minutes, until meatballs are browned; drain. 
Meanwhile, combine jelly and remaining sauce in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, until mixture is well blended. Add meatballs; simmer until heated through. Meatballs may be kept warm in a slow cooker while serving. Makes about 5 dozen. 

Kitchen Tips: These are great to make sub sandwiches. Make them ahead of time and wrap in aluminum foil to keep warm.
