Cocktail Meatballs with Spiced Cranberry Sauce


Yield: 2 dozen meatballs 


Active Time: 40 minutes
Start to Finish: 40 minutes

For this recipe you’ll need:

For the meatballs:

  • 3/4 pound ground chuck
  • 1/4 pound ground pork
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary, minced

For the sauce:

  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 red onion, small dice
  • 3/4 cup chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup Cranberry Pepper Jelly or any other cranberry jam of your choice
  1. Preheat oven to 375º.

  2. To prepare the meatballs mix together the ground meats, shallot, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, egg and rosemary.

  3. Form the meatballs into 1-inch balls, and place them on a parchment-lined sheet tray.

  4. Bake the meatballs until they are just cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.

  5. To prepare the sauce, heat a heavy, wide pan over medium heat and add the butter. Sauté the onion, stirring occasionally, until lightly caramelized, 5 to 6 minutes.

  6. Add the chili sauce and Cranberry Pepper Jelly and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes.

  7. Transfer the cooked meatballs to the sauce and spoon the sauce over them to coat.

  8. Place a toothpick in each meatball and serve.
