Coated with sweet currant jelly, these easy-to-make broiled meatballs are perfect for a party. The combination of ground beef, finely chopped red onion, bread crumbs, and ground nutmeg makes for a sweet but savory base. If you’re not serving the Glazed Cocktail Meatballs right away, throw the bites in a crockpot, on to the “warming” or lowest setting, and set a box or bowl of toothpicks nearby, so guests can nab their own meatballs as they’d like. But note that the sticky coating means these treats require more than a cocktail napkin; provide small plates nearby so guests can nibble away with ease.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine 1 pound ground beef, ½ small red onion (finely chopped), ½ cup bread crumbs, 1 large egg, and ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg; season with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Shape into 1-inch balls and broil until cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes.

Step 3

In a large skillet, heat ½ cup currant jelly; add the meatballs and toss to coat.
