Grape Jelly Meatballs Recipe

A few years ago my friend Tara brought these grape jelly meatballs to a work function.  I was not thrilled when I heard her describe them, but like the saying goes – give it a try.  I tried them, and loved them.  I have since made them for many potlucks and work functions.

I was invited to a 40th anniversary party and offered to bring them, they were a hit!

Now I must tell you, I made these one year, and accidentally purchased COCKTAIL sauce NOT CHILI sauce – DON’T do that!!


I usually buy:

2 packages of meatballs

2 jars of chili sauce

and either 2 smaller jars of jelly or this jar is actually bigger.

I don’t really have a recipe so I often google from the grocery store to see what the recommended amounts are.

I typically put the meatballs in my crockpot and mix the jelly and chili sauce in a bowl and zap it in the microwave to get the jelly melting. I stir that really well with a whisk until it is combined.

I forgot to snap a picture when they were really cooked.

Have you tried these?  What is your favorite dish to bring to a potluck?
