These are a perfect addition to any sports event party, or any party, or as a personal snack.

Nothing says these cannot be a main course as well.

Veal Meatballs with Sweet Plum Sauce

for meatballs

  • 1 lb ground veal
  • 1 cup onion finely diced
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1/8 cup red wine
  • Salt/pepper
  • Bread crumbs

for sauce

  • 2 tbsp plum jelly
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp butter

Mix meatball ingredients together and add enough bread crumbs to make a rough mass. Form into golf ball-sized meatballs and place on a greased baking tray. Bake at 365 degrees until cooked through turning once. Mix all sauce ingredients together except onion. In a large saute pan heat butter. Saute onion over medium until softened. Add sauce and bring to a simmer. Cook until sauce begins to thicken, about five minutes. Add meatballs and toss to coat. Continue to cook until sauce is thick. Serve hot.
