Here’s another terrific meal to make for your family using ingredients from the Bishops’ Storehouse. This is a good meal to make in the fall/winter, and today is cold (15°) and snowing so it’s a good choice. Plus the house smells amazing when these are baking.
I got this recipe from my mother, and for some reason I think it’s an old depression era meal, but I’m not certain.
Applesauce Meatballs are very moist and soft, so you need to be careful as you’re browning them.
To finish the meal, I’m serving it with baked potatoes with sour cream, and cottage cheese/pear salads. For dessert I made homemade peanut butter cookies. Everything from the storehouse! I cannot tell you how grateful I am for the blessing of this food in our lives. With my husband out of work for two years, this has literally saved us.
I hope this helps you if you are looking for a good meal to serve your family. Enjoy!
Mix together lightly:
1 lb ground beef
½ cup dry bread crumbs (you could probably use cracker crumbs or crushed cornflakes)
2 Tablespoons grated onion
½ cup applesauce (unsweetened)
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Form into 2” balls. Brown in frying pan with a little shortening. Place in baking dish. (I use a 13x9 pan as I usually double the recipe.)
Mix together: ¼ cup catsup and ¼ cup water. Pour over meatballs. Cover. Bake at 350º for one hour. Serve hot.
Yup! It was good!
