“People devour these meatballs. The meatballs and apricot sauce can be prepared in advance; combine the two, however, just before baking. I use Annie’s Naturals brand French dressing in this recipe because I like the authentic, close-to-homemade taste. I’m partial to the French onion dip mix from Simply Organic.” — Kerry Dunnington, author of This Book Cooks

In a sauté pan, heat oil over moderate heat and cook meatballs until light brown and cooked through. Drain off fat. Transfer meatballs to a baking dish to accommodate.
To prepare the apricot sauce, combine French dressing, apricot preserves, and French onion dip mix in a medium bowl. Pour apricot mixture over meatballs and gently stir to combine.
Cover and bake for 30–40 minutes or until sauce is bubbling. Serve immediately.
