Ingredients

  • 2
    pounds lean ground beef
  • 1
    cup Progresso™ dry bread crumbs (any flavor)
  • 2/3
    cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2
    cup milk
  • 2
    tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2
    teaspoons salt
  • 1
    teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8
    teaspoon pepper
  • 2
    eggs
  • 2
    bottles (12 ounces each) chili sauce
  • 2
    jars (10 ounces each) grape jelly

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Stir together all ingredients except chili sauce and jelly. Shape into 1-inch meatballs. Place in ungreased retangular pan, 13x9x2 inches, or on rack in broiler pan.
  • 2
    Bake uncovered about 20 minutes or until no longer pink in center and juice is clear.
  • 3
    Heat chili sauce and jelly in Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring contantly, until jelly is melted. Stir in meatballs until coated. Simmer uncovered 30 minutes. Serve hot with toothpicks.

  • Handle meatballs as little as possible when forming them to keep them moist and tender.
  • This mouthwatering sauce is just as scrumptious when used with prepared frozen meatballs or smoked cocktail sausages.
