Meatballs with Delicious Dipping Sauces
Contributed by: News Canada
- 3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup very finely chopped onion
- 1/3 cup Egg Creations OriginalTM, well shaken
- 1 tbsp Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 lb each lean ground beef and pork
- 2 cups beef broth
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Stir the breadcrumbs with the onion, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Crumble in the beef and pork and mix gently using hands until combined.
Shape into 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls. Bake on a baking sheet for 15 minutes or until cooked through. (Meatballs can be prepared up to this point and frozen for up to 1 month.)
Transfer the meatballs to a slow cooker or chafing dish. Whisk the broth with the cornstarch and bring to a boil. Stir until thickened. Pour the hot broth mixture over meatballs and simmer gently to keep warm.
Serve with toothpicks to skewer and dip into sauces.
