Excellent source vitamin B12, vitamin D, and zinc.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb (500 g) lean ground beef
1 cup (250 mL) soft, fresh breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp (30 mL) milk
2 tbsp (30 mL) onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper
2/3 cup (150 mL) Heinz Chili Sauce
2/3 cup (150 mL) red currant jelly


Directions

Preheat oven to 350°.


Gently blend beef, breadcrumbs, egg, milk, onion, garlic, salt and pepper until evenly combined.


Form into about 40 bite-sized meatballs.


Place meatballs on a foil-lined, rimmed baking sheet; bake for 20 minutes or until cooked all the way through.


Combine chili sauce and jelly in a saucepan set over medium heat.


Cook, stirring, until jelly dissolves, about 5 minutes.


Add cooked meatballs to the sauce; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes.


Makes 8 servings.


Twists:


Twist 1:For a meat variation, use ground turkey or pork for the ground beef.


Twist 2:For a vegetarian option, purchase ready made veggiemeatballs and heat in the sauce for 10 to 15 minutes.


Twist 3:For a peachy version, substitute peach jam for the red currant jelly.


Twist 4:For a tangy citrus version, substitute citrus marmalade for the red currant jelly.


Twist 5:For a sweet and spicy version, substitute hot pepper jelly for the red currant jelly.


Twist 6:For a grape-licious version, substitute grape jelly for the red currant jelly.


Twist 7:For an Indian-influenced version, substitute mango chutney for the red currant jelly.
