2 lb ground beef
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 can cranberry sauce
1 can sauerkraut
1 bottle chili sauce
1/4 C bread crumbs
3/4 C brown sugar
Mix together hamburger, bread crumbs, soup mix, and eggs. Form into meatballs the size of a cotton ball. Arrange in a large casserole dish with lid. Make sure there's plenty of room in the dish to allow for bubbling juices and possible overflow.
Meanwhile, in a sauce pan combine and heat till saucy the cranberry sauce, sauerkraut, chili sauce, refill the chili sauce bottle with water and add that, and brown sugar. Pour over the meatballs making sure they are all covered.
Bake at 325 for 2 hours, uncovered for the last 30 minutes.
They are a wonderful mix of meaty, sweet, and tangy. I love them. And I would love to know who the mad scientist cook was who first thought "Hey, I bet if I throw cranberry sauce, sauerkraut, and chili sauce into something together it'll be awesome!". Cause yeah, I never would have thought of it.
