Meat Ball Pie For Fifty


6 lbs Hamburger

6 eggs beaten

2 tsp Salt

1 Cup Chili Sauce

3/4 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Cooking Oil  for browning or baking meatballs.

Gravy and Vegetables:

1 and 1/2 Cups Flour

2 TB Salt

2 Quarts Vegetable Juice

3 Quarts Mixed Vegetables
Bisquick Mix- large box

Milk to make the biscuits
Form meat balls into 1 and 1/2" balls, brown in 1/2 cup cooking oil (I would just bake them in 2 jelly roll pans in the divided oil at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or so)  You need the oil the make the gravy, don't omit it to save calories. Divide the meatballs between two foil pans.

Now pour the oil and drippings into a large pot and add the flour, whisk smooth over the heat and add the vegetable juice and salt then whisk until thickened.
Note: the recipe doesn't say whether to use canned or frozen veggies. If I used frozen I'd cook 10 minutes separately or in the gravy before diving between the two pans. Maybe you could use a large foil pan instead of two.

Divide the gravy and veggies between the two pans and stir to mix with meatballs.

Make Bisquick biscuits and place on top before baking at 450 degrees for 25 minutes. Serves 50

NOTE:Use your favorite biscuits if you don't like Bisquick ones.
