Steps to CrEATe:
1.) In food processor, process mushrooms, then red onions. Add to 1 lb. beef in large bowl. Add seasonings and coconut oil set aside.
2.) Cut and chop red bell peppers into small squares, mine were 1 ½ inches and I have meat left over, you could do 2” x 2” inches. I made 12 green and 9 red, you can make more depending on the size of your party. Set squares on large cooking tray. Heat oven to broil 400°
3.) Rollin into 1 ½” meatballs, I made 21 with 21 bell pepper squares. Place one meatball on top of each bell pepper square.
4.) Broil for 10 minutes. While broiling, make your cranberry glaze…
5.) Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan, heat to low-medium, stirring frequently.
6.) Remove meatballs and add 1-2 tsp. cranberry glaze on each slider. Make into the shape of a Christmas Tree or wreath or just place them on a plate.
