This week Miss B let me have the honor of choosing what the theme of Share A Spoon would be. I'm an appetizer eatin' fool. If there are appetizers involved...chances are, I'll be there lol.
Now I'll be the first person to tell you that I do NOT like seafood. (Yeah, I'm Cajun and I don't like seafood!!) Fried shrimp is about the only seafood I'll eat and honestly, the last few times I've had it I wasn't all that thrilled with it.
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley
1/3 cup minced onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup shortening
1 (12 ounce) bottle chile sauce
1 1/4 cups grape jelly
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, dry bread crumbs and milk. Blend in ground pepper, parsley, onion, salt, egg and Worcestershire sauce. Mix thoroughly.
Shape the beef mixture into 1 inch meatballs. In a large skillet, melt the shortening over medium heat and brown the meatballs.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, mix the chile sauce and grape jelly over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until jelly is melted.
Pour the sauce over the browning meatballs and simmer for 30 minutes, or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked.
