These meatballs were brought to an office potluck by one of my co-workers. Water chestnuts give these nicely glazed meatballs a wonderful texture. - Kim Johnston, East Wenatchee, Washington

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-in. balls. Place meatballs on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the first five sauce ingredients until smooth; add onion. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Drain meatballs; top with sauce. Yield: 25 meatballs.
If you're going to keep prepared horseradish longer than 1 month after opening, spoon tablespoonfuls onto a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze until solid; transfer to a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag and freeze for 6 months.
