Red Cocktail Sauce for Meatballs

This week for my Personal PIGskin Challenge I picked a sauce recipe from "back in the day" and I'm using frozen meatballs. This tangy, yet a little sweet, sauce is an old time favorite of...
um... everyone apparently:@)
Red Cocktail Sauce for Meatballs
1/3 C onion, chopped fine
1/3 C green pepper, chopped fine
1 Can Campbell's Tomato Soup
2 Tblsp brown sugar
4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tblsp prepared yellow mustard
-Saute the onion and pepper lightly until clear but not over done.
-Add the rest and mix well and simmer before adding meatballs.
-Makes enough sauce for one pound of meatballs.

  1. Can you believe I have never cooked meatballs before? never-ever. And I really like them. :/ Strange.....

    Probably because Mr. Art @ Home never asks for them because he always orders them at our favorite Italian restaurant!

    Thanks for the recipe in case I ever make them!

    PS Earl is going to kick that pumpkins butt!

  4. I'll bet the sauce is wonderful with meatballs. I remember using it with miniature hot dogs and it was an extremely popular treat for years. Thanks for the reminder. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  35. I haven't made meatballs in a long time. I usually use the chili sauce and grape jelly recipe (how original is that), but that one sounds pretty good. Who doesn't like Campbell's tomato soup.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't make meatballs often, but when I do I always end up with the grape jelly/chili sauce sauce. I really need to branch out a bit!

    Hope things are well on your end. We have been having a great few of days of sunshine finally after rain all last week. I guess we have a blast of winter coming in tonight after a storm. So, I'm enjoying the sunshine while I can!
