Cheddar is the most popular cheese in Canada.


Ingredients


Sauce:
1/2 cup (125 mL) cranberry juice
1/2 cup (125 mL) cranberries, fresh or frozen
3 tbsp (45 mL) maple syrup
Salt and ground pepper, to taste

Meatballs:
1 lb (450 g) ground lean veal
1 egg, beaten
1 Slice of whole wheat bread, crumbled
2 tsp (10 mL) fresh rosemary, chopped
5 oz (150 g) Medium Cheddar block, diced in 1/4-inch (3/4 cm) cubes

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450 °F (230 °C).

In a small skillet, bring cranberry juice and fruit to a boil along with maple syrup. Cook 8-10 minutes. Purée cranberries until smooth and add salt and pepper. Set aside, keeping warm or at room temperature.

In a bowl, mix veal, egg, bread crumbs and rosemary. Season generously.

Shape small meatballs by coating the diced Cheddar cheese with the meat mixture; it should be entirely coated.

Arrange meatballs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place on top oven rack; cook 8-10 minutes or until golden and fully cooked. Warning: do not overcook as cheese will melt and seep away.

Serve warm, with the cranberry sauce as dip.
