Cocktail Meatballs

"These were absolutely the best I've ever had. They remind me a little of mamwich sauce. The changes, as suggest in a review, are included."


2 pound lean ground beef
2 egg
1/2 cup ketchup
1 cup bread crumbs
6 tablespoons minced onion
1 (16 ounce) can jellied cranberry sauce
1 1/2 cups chili sauce
2 tablespoon brown sugar
3 teaspoons lemon juice
2 t. soy sauce
parsley to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, egg, ketchup, bread crumbs, parsley and minced onion. Roll into small meatballs.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, turning once.
In a slow cooker or large saucepan over low heat, blend the cranberry sauce, chili sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce and lemon juice. Add meatballs, and simmer for 1 hour before serving.


Chili sauce comes in a glass bottle. I found it in the store near the ketchup, it really doesn't have anything to do with chili. I had to buy two bottles for this recipe, but I had some left over.

Serves 12
