Ingredients

1 pound ground beef

1 egg, beaten

3/4 cup plain bread crumbs

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Sliced green olives with pimento

About 2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup apricot jelly

1 cup chili sauce

Directions

  1. With a fork or clean hands, gently combine the meat, egg, bread crumbs, salt, and pepper. Shape into 1-inch balls. Press a green olive slice into the ball to make "eyes". Melt the butter in a large saute pan and brown the meatballs on all sides. Drain off the fat. In a bowl, stir together the jelly and chili sauce and pour over the meatballs. Simmer uncovered for 30 minutes over medium to low heat, turning the meatballs regularly.
