When I first heard of this recipe, I thought there was no way this strange combination of ingredients could be tasty. However, after hearing it many times and finally tasting it, I was convinced.
These are so easy, so yummy, and they only require three ingredients. They make a wonderful party appetizer and the recipe can easily be doubled if you have a large crowd. I may have even fed them to my family as a dinner entree before!!
I know the ingredients seem to be an odd combination, but I promise you will not be disappointed!
Easy Appetizer Meatballs
24-32 oz. bag of frozen meatballs
12 oz jar of chili sauce
10 oz grape jelly (the jar pictured is a 20 oz jar)
Put the meatballs in a small crock pot. Stir together the jelly and the chili sauce. Pour sauce over the meatballs and cook on low for 4 hours.
Variation 1: Some recipes call for a can of jellied cranberry sauce rather than the grape jelly.
Variation 2: These can also be made on the stovetop. Pour chili sauce and the jelly (or cranberry sauce) into a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until they become smooth. Add the meatballs, stir, and cover. Continue cooking for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
