I remember tasting these once at a summer potluck! I thought they were delicious and asked my friend Joann what the “recipe” was. She got this funny “guilty” look on her face and said, “Would you believe a jar of chili sauce, a jar of grape jelly and a bag of frozen meatballs?” I laughed and said “If you say so! Regardless, they are DELICIOUS!” And I think I ate about a dozen…or so.
I have always MEANT to try and make these ever since then (several years ago now!) and it wasn’t until I saw this recipe on SixSistersStuff.blogspot.com that my memory was stirred about that intention! This is DEFINITELY on the menu for this week…but since I have tasted it before…I can HIGHLY recommend it!
Combine jelly and chili sauce in a crock pot an stir until smooth. Heat the mixture if needed to combine. Add meatballs or cocktail sausages and set temperature to low. Cook for 2-5 hours on low. Serve over rice or with toothpicks!
I would definitely serve over rice….we LOVE rice at our house! I personally think it’s just about the PERFECT food!
Economical….filling….easy to make….goes with a million different things.…GLUTEN-FREE…..can season/flavor it a million different ways….can use in both sweet and savory dishes….
I could go on and on. I think I need to write a song or write a poem in celebration of RICE! :-) (making mental note).
