Potluck Meatballs

I've found that these mini meatballs make a hearty, "can't-miss" appetizer year round. They are always well-received at a potluck,and the only "utensil" I need to supply is toothpicks. They also make a good entree over noodles.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed beef consomme, undiluted

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients; crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-1/4-in. balls. In a large skillet, brown meatballs in batches; drain.
  • Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Combine cornstarch and consomme until smooth; add to skillet. Bring to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Boil for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  • Pour over the meatballs. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until 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.
