Scary Roommate Microwave Meatballs

While I was in college I had a scary roommate.  But she made awesome meatballs. The first time I watched her I was totally weirder out because she cooked them in the microwave. 

I thought “What you can’t cook meat in the microwave. That is totally ridiculous.”

The only meat I had ever cooked in the microwave was the accidental chicken breast that I was trying to defrost and defrosted a little too long.  Yuck. 

But then I tried these meatballs, and I was hooked.  They are fast easy, tasty and best of all during the hot summer you can make them without heating up your house. 

Scary Roommate Microwave Meatballs
1 lb Ground Beef (or Turkey)
4 eggs beaten
2 cups bread crumbs
½ c onion
1 T salt
¼ tsp pepper
2 T Worcestershire sauce

Mix and form into meatballs. Place in a greased baking dish.  Round works best. Microwave 4 minutes, gently stir.  Microwave 4 more minutes, gently stir. Pour sauce over meatballs. Microwave 2 minutes.  Serve over rice or noodles.

2 Can tomato soup  (do not add the water)
1/4 cup T Brown sugar
3 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 T prepared mustard (we use French's Yellow Hot dog mustard but use what you have)
1 T vinegar

Mix and pour over meatballs. Serve with rice or potatoes
