Vegetarian Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Meatballs:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried sage
  • 2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs

Sweet and Sour Sauce:

    Ad

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup apricot jam
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 dash hot pepper sauce

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, Cheddar cheese, and cottage cheese until well blended. Mix in 1/2 cup onion, pecans, basil, salt and sage. Stir in bread crumbs. Form the mixture into 2 inch balls, and place them in a 9x13 inch baking dish.

In another bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil, vinegar, apricot jam, ketchup, 1/4 cup onion, oregano and hot pepper sauce. Pour over meatballs.

Bake uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until meatballs are firm, and sauce is thick and bubbly.

I first found this recipe about 3 years ago on a different site and I love it. I can't get enough of it.

I like to make extra sauce, then make some rice and chop up some vegetables like bell peppers, sno peas, and bean sprouts, then top a plate of rice with the vegetables, "meat balls" and sauce. It's sooo good and even the meat-eaters in my life love it.
