Cocktail Meatballs

This is another great recipe that I had while at my brother's house. Adding grape jelly to the sauce seemed a little bizarre at first, but it is really good. My sister-in-law said this sauce is also great with cocktail sausages too.

Even though the cooking method says "bake," you will also cook the meatballs in a skillet before you bake them.
