View Full Version : Anyone out there a horseradish fan?

05-08-2002, 04:19 PM
If you like horseradish, I thought I would share a yummy recipe I made for dinner tonight. Both the meatballs and the sauce call for horseradish -- DH loves it, so this recipe caught my eye. I used a heaping tablespoon of it in the meat mixture and in the sauce, instead of the one tablespoon called for. That worked well. These are great meatballs with a nice kick. I served them with rice.

(For dessert, I made my first "dump cake" after reading about dump cakes on the bb a few weeks ago. My dump cake has cherries, pineapple, coconut, and a box of yellow cake mix. oh yeah, it also has a stick of butter. :eek: can't wait to try it.)

Here is the meatball recipe...

My DH and I both like horseradish and the meatballs sound really good. The sauce is another matter. I can't do the ketchup and chili sauce, any other ideas on serving these meatballs?

I loved the sauce but I understand that some people can't do tomato saucey things...

I think the horseradish in the sauce is an excellent compliment to the meatballs, so I would use a sauce that incorporates horseradish. I found a couple in mastercook that look good...

Thanks for the recipes, they both sound good. Not being able to do the tomato thing really infuriates me. I love tomatoes and really miss all the sauces. Maybe someday I'll out grow it. One can always hope.

Another big thanks, Val! I'm especially intrigued by the Cranberry Jezebel Sauce -- sounds yummy on pork chops!

I meant to say...

the original recipe called for 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef and a half pound of turkey. or vice versa, I can't remember which.

but I just used all turkey.
