The combination of cranberries and sauerkraut give these meatballs a different flavor. I'm always asked for the recipe whenever I bring this dish to a potluck.

Ingredients

  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
  • 1-1/3 cups water
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) chili sauce
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • Hot mashed potatoes

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the soup mix and bread crumbs; crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 18 meatballs. Place in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the cranberry sauce, sauerkraut, water, chili sauce and brown sugar. Bring to a boil. Pour over meatballs.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1-1/2 hours or until meat is no longer pink. Serve with mashed potatoes.
