Meatballs: Ingredients

Chop Meat - 80% lean - 1 lb

Eggs - 1 Large Whisked

Onion - 1/2 Diced

Garlic - 3 cloves

Parsley ~ 1/4 Head Finely Chopped

Brown Sugar - 2 tbs

Panko Bread Crumbs ~ 1/2 Cup

Spices, Add the following Desired:

Salt, Pepper

Meatballs: Directions

Mix all of the above in a kitchen aid. Add more bread crumbs if the meat is not firm when formed into spheres.

Bake in the oven at 350 F for 35 minutes. I find it comes out best in Cast Iron. Cover to increase tenderness.

Apple Cranberry Stuffing: Ingredients

Cinnamon Raisin Toast - 1 Loaf - Diced and Dehydrated in Oven at 350 F for 10 minutes

Spread out over a baking tray

Celery - 1/2 of the useful part

Onion - 1 Whole Diced - or less, I like onions but you do you

Veggie Broth ~ 10 Oz.

Honey Crisp Apple - 1 Peeled and diced

Eggs - 2 Whisked

Spices: Cinnamon, Salt, Pepper

Apple Cranberry Stuffing: Directions

Mix all ingredients in a bowl before setting in a deep ceramic baking dish and into a 350 Degree F oven for 30 minutes.

Meatball Sauce

If you baked your meatballs in a cast iron, they should be coming out of the oven now. To give you dish that extra flavor, I recommend removing the meatballs to sit in another pan and begin working in the Cast Iron they baked in.

Start with melting a stick of butter to mix with the residue from the meatballs

Once melted, add ~ 1/4 cup of flour and whisk together.

Once combined, add

Dijon Mustard - 1 tbs

Wirschester Sauce - A couple Drops

It’s important to keep the temperature low to avoid burning the sauce

Also, if your sauce is too thick, or your want to get more out of it, I recommend adding your preference of stock to the mixture. On the contrary, if it’s too thin, add flour or heavy cream to the mixture.

Cranberry Sauce and Thai Noodles.

They look pretty and work in the picture, but I imagine this dish would be significantly improved if substituted with Speatzle. It works much better with the Mustard in the Sauce and Germany is much closer to Sweeden than Thailand is, so it makes more sense.

THAT BEING SAID!

Cranberry Sauce and Thai Noodles Make for an excellent combination and I will add them in other Recipes
