  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  3. Using your hands, mix well until the spices and breadcrumbs are evenly distributed.
  4. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  5. Shape the meat into 1-1/4-inch meatballs, getting them as round as you can. You should have about 18 meatballs.
  6. Place them on the baking sheet and into the oven.
  7. Cook for 10 minutes, then flip them and cook for another 10 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by melting the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

  10. Add the Heinz 57°, peach preserves and beef broth.
  11. Mix well and bring to a simmer. Cook for about 5 minutes, then remove from heat.
  12. When the meatballs come out of the oven, add them to the pan and return to the burner over medium heat.
  13. Toss well to coat the meatballs.
  14. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, occasionally tossing the meatballs to coat well.
  15. When the sauce has thickened and the meatballs are well-coated, transfer to a bowl or slow cooker to serve.
