    Apricot Sweet-and-Sour Meatball Recipe

    An Asian-inspired sauce raises the flavor standard for ordinary meatballs.

    1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
    1/4 cup Progresso« plain dry bread crumbs
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    1 egg, slightly beaten
    1/2 cup apricot preserves
    1/4 cup hoisin sauce
    1/4 cup rice vinegar
    1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
    1 medium red or green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces

    1. Heat oven to 375║F. Spray jelly roll pan, 15 1/2x10 1/2x1 inch, with cooking spray.

    2. Mix beef, bread crumbs, salt, garlic powder, ginger and egg until well blended. Shape into 1-inch meatballs; place in pan. Bake uncovered 20 to 25 minutes or until no longer pink in center and juice is clear; drain.

    3. Mix preserves, hoisin sauce, vinegar and red pepper in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until hot. Add drained meatballs and bell pepper. Cook until bell pepper is crisp-tender. Serve with cocktail toothpicks.
