    Combine green beans and apples in provided tray. Spread into a single layer.

    Bake uncovered in hot oven, 10 minutes.

  2. 2

    Make the Meatballs

    While green beans and apples bake, finely crush crackers.

    Combine ground beef, bacon, 1/3 the mayonnaise (reserve remaining for sauce), crushed crackers, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Form into six equally-sized meatballs.

    Carefully remove tray from oven. Push apples and green beans to one side and top with garlic salt, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil.

    Place meatballs in empty side of tray.

  3. 3
