1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 slice of bread crumbled (to make it gluten free just use gluten free bread)
1/4 cup chopped onion or 1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 lb. ground beef
Mix ingredient well in a bowl and form into golf ball size meatballs. ( I do mine a tiny bit smaller). Bake uncovered at 350 F for 30 minutes or in the microwave on HIGH for 13 minutes.
In a saucepan combine:
1 1/2 cup rice
3 cup chicken broth or 3 cups of water with 4 boullion cubes
1/4 cup snipped fresh parsley or 2 T dried
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Cover and simmer till rice is done
In another saucepan:
Melt 1/2 cup butter or margarine
Add 1/2 cup brown sugar
Add 3-4 cups of desired fruit
Fruit can be apples, nectarines, peaches, grapes (cut in half) or cantelppe. Soft melons do not work well. Cut the fruit into small pieces. (apples, nectarines and peaches cut into quarters and then halves.
Cook fruit mixture for 2 to 3 minutes.
Blend in separate bowl:
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup lemon juice
Stir into fruit mixture. Cook until thick and bubbly.
Add meatballs to fruit mixture sauce and serve over rice.
YIELD: 4-5 servings. (I always one and a half the sauce because it is so good and we like more sauce than rice.)
