How to Make It

Step 1

Turn on the broiler.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine the beef, pork, onion, egg, ⅓ cup half and half, bread crumbs, allspice, salt, and pepper. Using damp hands, roll mixture into 1-1 ½ inch balls.

Step 3

Place the meatballs on foil-lined baking sheet and broil, turning once, until browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Transfer the meatballs to a casserole dish and pour off the drippings into a small saucepan.

Step 4

Place the small saucepan over medium low heat. Add the butter to the drippings. When the butter has melted, stir in the flour until it forms a paste. Cook, stirring constantly, until lightly brownedabout 1 minute. Add remaining ⅓ cup half and half and bring to a simmer, still stirring constantly, for 3-5 minutes more, until the sauce is smooth and thick. Stir in beef broth to thin the sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Pour sauce over meatballs and toss gently. Garnish with parsley. Serve hot with a bowl of chunky cranberry sauce on the side.
