Homemade Recipe Here.
fill half of empty Heinz bottle
whole berry cranberry sauce
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.
Prepare the Meatballs
In a large stainless mixing bowl, mix together the ground burger, onion soup mix, and bread crumbs. You can also use crushed saltine crackers.
Using a cookie scoop, shape into small meatballs. Place in an oblong baking pan sprayed with baking spray.
Make the Sauce
In a separate bowl, mix together the chili sauce, water, brown sugar, drained sauerkraut, and whole cranberry sauce. Pour mixture over the meatballs.
Bake uncovered for 2 hours in preheated oven. Let set for 15 minutes and then turn the meatballs.
If you're planning to take this to a potluck dinner, you may also opt to place the meatballs in a slow cooker to keep warm on low. Serves 8-10
*Wine Recommendations - Serve with a Dry Riesling such as
Chateau Michelle Riesling
or a favorite Gewurztraminer.
