Gram's Super Easy Sweet and Sour Meatballs
From Barbara “Gram” Maynard
Recipe type: Main Dish, Beef
  • 1 package frozen cooked meatballs (between 20-30 ounces)
  • 1 12-ounce jar Heinz chili sauce
  • 12 ounces grape jelly (yeah, I know, it maybe sounds weird, but it tastes amazing!)
  • Cayenne pepper (optional)
  1. In a large sauce pan, mix together the chili sauce and grape jelly. Place over medium-high heat and add meatballs. Bring to an almost boil (will be spluttering, so you will need to stir regularly), then reduce heat to a simmer (medium or medium-low) and cook until meatballs are hot.
  2. Gram never did this, but if you’d like a bit more heat to the meatballs, sprinkle a bit of cayenne pepper in at the end to taste.
  3. See Comment #3 below for crockpot directions!
