Another Best of the Best Recipe from my book
This is a great Hors D'oeuvres
It's from Christmas 1977
It's an original recipe
I created this before I became vegetarian and made them for Christmas many years.
So, this is one of the few non vegetarian recipes that I've posted. However, over the years with all of the incredible Vegetarian Products on the market, I can reproduce a Vegetarian version of this recipe.
They are delicious.
1 1/2 lbs. Ground Beef
2 C prepared Cornbread Crumbs
1 (8oz.) can Tomato Sauce
1 (16oz.) can Mild Enchilada Sauce
1 tsp Salt
2 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
In a bowl, combine:
1/2 of the Enchilada Sauce
Add Ground Beef and mix by hand
Measure by the TBS and form into meatballs
These may be made ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to bake
Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 30 minutes
Combine Tomato Sauce and remaining Enchilada Sauce in a saucepan and heat
Place the meatballs in a Fondue Pot ( this sure gives away the date) or a Chafing Dish.
Pour the Sauce over the meatballs
Sprinkle the Cheese on top and serve
Makes about 55 meatballs
Peace in the Kitchen!
