Carey Family's RaceTime Meatballs
These Meatballs are perfect for feeding the race time gang.
 
Preparation Time: 20 minutes preparation, 60 minutes cooking time
 
Ingredients:
Meatballs
  • 2 lb hamburger
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup parsley
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic (optional)
  • 2 tablespoon minced onion
  • 2 eggs
 
Sauce
  • 2 14oz cans Jellied Cranberry Sauce 
  • 2 12oz jars chill sauce
  • 4 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
 
Directions:
  • Mix meatball ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
  • Knead the mixture until fully mixed
  • Mold into meatballs about 1 inch in diameter (a hand-held meatball maker is perfect for this).
  • Brown meatballs in a skillet.
  • While they're cooking, prepare the sauce.
    .
    Sauce:
  • Combine all the sauce ingredients in a crock-pot, and thoroughly stir mixture.
    It's ok if the Jellied Cranberry is a little chunky. It will smooth out during cooking.
  • Drain the meatballs and add them to the sauce in the crock-pot.
  • Gently mix the meatballs with the sauce so as not to break your meatballs apart.
  • Check on your pot every 30min to gently stir the sauce around your meatbals.
  • Cook on high for 60 to 90 minutes. 
    Cooking time will depend on your crockpot. Cook for 45min and check on your concoction. If they could use a little more time to brown or darken add 15min. You can also turn the heat to low and keep them warm for up to 2 hours.  
  • Serve hot with fresh cornbread
.
Alternatives:
  • I like to use Italian spiced bread crumbs instead of plain, it adds a little flavor. 
  • Exchange the Jellied Cranberry Sauce with a 32oz jar of Welch's Concord Grape jelly
  • Being diabetic, I don't use the brown sugar at all. There's enough sugar in the Grape jelly. 
  • Instead of the chili sauce, I like using Masterpiece Original Barbeque Sauce.
