(Almost) Grandma Alta's Meatballs--Aka My Favorite Meatball

2 lbs ground beef
1 cup breadcrumbs (GF work great)
14 cup water
2 eggs
1 onion, grated
1 (12 ounce) bottle chili sauce
1 (16 ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice


"Combine first 5 ingredients, season with salt and pepper and chill (very important). While this is chilling, Combine the last 4 ingredients in a non-reactive pot. Simmer. Form meat mixture into balls and lay out in a 9X13 baking dish (any size meatball should work). You don't need to bake them or brown them! They hold together well, as long as they chill first. You can now carefully add the meatballs to your sauce and simmer for 1 hour OR you can pour the sauce over the meatballs, cover them with foil, and bake 1 hour at 325F. Love you, Mom".
