- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of celery soup
- 1⁄2 cup water
- Beat egg and milk add stuffing. Stir till smooth with fork. Add meat, applesauce, sage, onions, salt and pepper. Blend gently do not overwork. Form 24 meatballs. Arrange in a nice casserole dish or glass baking dish. Blend soup and water well. Pour over the meatballs. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
What a delicious dish!! It was so easy to prepare. I took it to a potluck and it disappeared so quickly, people wanted the recipe and were suprised to find that it had applesauce in it. I would definitely make again.
