  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground mustard

Preheat oven to 375.

  1. Mix ground beef, eggs, 1/2 cup tomato juice, quick oats, diced onion, ground mustard, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings together in a large bowl.
  2. Form the beef mixture into 11-12 large meatballs and place them into a 9 by 13 inch baking dish, then press into the center of each meatball creating a hole/cavern to place the cheese into.
  3. Press one or two cheese squares into each meatball center, then pour 3/4 cup tomato juice over top, covering each meatball equally with juice.
  4. Bake the beef volcanoes for 30-40 minutes, or until the center temperature reaches 160 degrees.

Serve these meatballs with Amish Style Mashed Potatoes or buttered noodles with a few dashes of garlic salt. Try Cheddar & Bacon Green beans for a vegetable side, or try asparagus spears baked at 375 for 12- 15 minutes; with lemon juice from 1/2 of a lemon, salt, pepper and grated parmesan cheese (you can also add a little garlic powder if you like).

These Little beef volcanoes may not look like much, but the cheesy, hearty combination is a great tasting, old fashioned comfort food!

My Grandmother (who is still a member of the old order Amish church) recently shared a lot of her old recipes with me. Stay tuned for recipes called Grandma’s Amish Recipe collection!
