Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place it in the oven.
  2. Stir cranberry juice, cranberries, and maple syrup together in a skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until cranberries burst, about 10 minutes.
  3. Pour cranberry mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth. Season pureed cranberry sauce with salt and pepper.
  4. Stir veal, egg, bread crumbs, and rosemary together in a bowl. Season meat mixture with salt and pepper.
  5. Shape meat mixture into balls by pressing the meat around the Cheddar cheese cubes. Place meatballs on prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake meatballs in the preheated oven until meat is cooked through and cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve meatballs with cranberry sauce.

The meatballs had a really good flavor, however, the sauce really needs some sugar. The cheese kind of gets lost, not sure I would use in these next time. The sauce was tangy and very tart. With some sugar I think it would make a world of difference. The maple syrup didn't add enough sweetness. I wish I had of tasted the sauce before I poured it over the meatballs. I would like to try these again but sweeten the sauce up a bit for a more tangy sweet balance. I followed the recipe exactly as written. Thanks for sharing.
