Sunday Supper - Easy Appetizer Meatballs

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.

So interesting, but I guess the grape jelly adds a nice sweet element? Meatballs are one of my favorite foods. They're just so versatile. And lately I've been thinking about how I love savory dishes with a touch of sweetness, and I love sweet dishes with a touch of salt.
