  • 1 small carrot, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups dried bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried basil

  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 pounds 40% fat ground beef
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups canned cranberry sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
