Gingered Meatballs

Have you ever gone to a cocktail party that went on forever? They served precious little hors d'oeuvres of lettuce leaves that wouldn't fill up a gnat. You leave the party at nine ready to eat a horse and then you have to go home and make a meal. Not good.

I've found several hearty recipes that allow your guests to nibble away and not go home hungry. I call these "heavy d'oeuvres" and serve them often. This one can be made ahead of time and frozen; at the ready for unexpected drop-ins.

This recipe makes about 40 balls.
GINGERED MEATBALLS

1 lb. hot turkey sausage (remove from casings)
1 egg
1/2 c bread crumbs
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 c coconut flakes

Mix together then roll into walnut-sized balls.
At this point they can be placed on a cookie sheet and flung into the freezer. When fully frozen, drop them into a plastic bag for further use. Or, you can add the sauce, cook them and serve.

SAUCE

1 c red current jelly
3T red wine vinegar
3T soy sauce
3t mustard
1/2 t grated fresh ginger
3T sugar
1 c chicken broth



* note - cherry jelly may be substituted for the red current jelly. I use bullion and water for the broth.
Place sauce in skillet and bring to a boil. Drop in meatballs and cook until meat is done and sauce is thickened.
I usually serve them in a small crock pot with toothpicks, but if you have snooty friends you might want to have the butler pass them on these little porcelain spoons.

Around here the butler (snort) would pass out toothpicks and everyone would crowd around the stove and eat out of the pan....then the scullery maid has fewer dishes to wash.
These sure sound good....
