Talk about easy. These meatballs only take 3 ingredients and your slow cooker. This is the perfect recipe for potlucks or your next football party.
My friend Julie opened my eyes to these grape jelly meatballs. She brought them to a potluck at work and they were gone in minutes.
Don't let the grape jelly throw you. They don't taste like grape but the jelly adds a touch of sweetness to balance out the chili sauce. These little suckers are dangerous - before you know it you've eaten 15.
We served them at our New Years Eve party along side chips and dip, veggies, bacon wrapped water chestnuts and cheese dip.
Put these on your Super Bowl Menu - stat.
Grape Jelly Meatballs
28 oz frozen meatballs
12 ounces chili sauce (like Heinz)
1 1/2 cups grape jelly
Pour the chili sauce and grape jelly into a slow cooker and whisk to combine. Add in frozen meatballs and stir to coat. Let cook on low for 4 hours.
I like to cook the day before and then put on low a couple hours before the party to warm up again. I kinda think this makes them extra juicy and tender.
Recipe can be doubled.
