Apricot Meatballs

This is one of my husband's favorites. It makes an easy meal for Sunday dinner. The tangy barbecue sauce gets a hint of sweetness from apricot preserves. - Lorenda Spain, Dumas, Texas.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce

Directions

  • In a bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-in. balls. In a skillet, brown meatballs in several batches; drain. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Combine preserves and barbecue sauce; pour over meatballs. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink.
Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
