Applesauce Meatballs Recipe
Anyone who loves apples will surely enjoy these meatballs. The ground beef is mixed with applesauce before frying to absorb its full flavor. Then, the meatballs are drenched with tomato soup-based sauce to keep them moist and juicy.
Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
Mix egg, applesauce, and breadcrumbs in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
- Crumble ground beef over the mixture and mix well. Shape into 1 ½” diameter meatballs.
- Combine tomato soup, water, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, and prepared horseradish to make the sauce. Pour over meatballs.
Cover the baking dish and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160 °F.
