MMMeatballs (appetizer or entrée)
For the meatballs:
2 pounds lean ground beef (at least 90% lean, 93% if you can get it)
1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup mix
1 cup bread crumbs (the purchased kind)
3 eggs, beaten
For the sauce:
1 can Ocean Spray whole-berry cranberry sauce
1 bottle Heinz chili sauce (12 oz)
12 oz water (just fill the bottle to measure)
1/2 cup brown sugar
Pre-heat oven to 350'F, 325 if using a glass baking dish.
Mix other ingredients thoroughly into meat. Bare (or gloved) hands are the best tools for this. Form into 1" balls and place into a 9x13" baking pan.
While your helper rolls meatballs, combine sauce ingredients into a stovetop pan. Heat over medium or medium-high heat, stirring, until sauce is hot.
Cranberry sauce will "melt," sugar will dissolve. Pour over meatballs. Bake at 350'F for 1 hour (325'F if using a glass pan).
For an appetizer, serve with toothpicks. For an entrée, serve over rice or egg noodles.
