Question Making meatballs

I'm too cheap to buy an $8 bag of meatballs for appetizers for my daughter's b-day, I'll make my own. This sound like I'm missing anything? Is 2 eggs too much for 1 lb of beef?
They'll have the grape jelly / chili sauce / mustard combo on them for sauce.

1 lb ground beef
3/4 c oatmeal
2 eggs
small onion, grated
sprinkle of garlic powder
parsley

1egg is more than enough for a pound of meat.

How about adding seasoned breadcrumbs in place of oatmeal for a more delicious flavor. Also some black pepper and parmasean cheese (a few tbsps) to make them a bit rich.

Another vote for breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. And a yes on the one egg.

I got impatient, I started. I shoulda waited another half hour, then I wouldn't have forgetten the salt!!!

They are ok, not great, I hope the sauce covers them up pretty well!

No big deal though, most of the folks coming have no tasebuds.

Once again, it seems my go-to recipe for a staple is from Betty Crocker

I just wanted to say, I can't imagine what the sauce would taste like. Is that a common dipping sauce I just haven't read about yet?
