Creole Meatballs




  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup Progresso™ Italian Style Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 (15-oz.) can tomato sauce


  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons currant jelly
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)


  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Beat egg in large bowl. Add ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, bell pepper, salt, celery salt, 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper and 2 tablespoons of the tomato sauce; mix well. Shape mixture into 48 (1 1/4-inch) meatballs, using about 1 tablespoon mixture for each. Place in ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
  2. Bake at 400°F. for 15 to 20 minutes or until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in center.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat until hot. With wire whisk, stir in flour; cook and stir until mixture turns a deep, rich brown color. Stir in remaining tomato sauce and all remaining sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil. Cook an additional minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Add cooked meatballs to sauce; stir gently to coat. Serve with cocktail toothpicks.
