  • 1 lb extra lean ground pork
  • 1 Tbsp onion flakes
  • 3/4 cup crushed corn flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp dry mustard


Preheat oven to 375ºF.

In a large bowl, combine ground pork, onion flakes, corn flakes, salt, pepper, and egg. In a small bowl stir together ketchup, brown sugar and dry mustard. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the ketchup mixture into the pork and mix well.

Spray muffin tin with vegetable cooking spray. Form 6 meatballs and place in muffin tin. Coat the top of each meatball with the remaining ketchup mixture.

Bake for 30 minutes in preheated oven, until nicely browned and glazed.


Steamed green beans and either potato wedges or scalloped potatoes make the meal complete (see recipes below).

To lower the sugar content, omit the brown sugar.
