Many years ago, someone in the family collected recipes from descendants of my great grandparents, William M. and Florence E. (Snodgrass) Whaley and had them compiled into a cookbook. I am posting those recipes here so that they will not be lost. This recipe was submitted by Darlene Whaley

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb
ground beef
1/2 c
dry bread crumbs
1/3 c
minced onion
1/4 c
milk
1 large
egg
1 Tbsp
snipped parsley
1 Tbsp
salt
1/8 tsp
pepper
1/2 tsp
worcestershire sauce
1/4 c
shortening
12 oz
bottle chili sauce
10 oz
grape jelly

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, milk, egg, parsley, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce.
2
Shape into 1 inch balls.
3
Melt shortening in large skillet; brown meatballs in shortening. Remove from heat and drain.
4
Put jelly and chili sauce in a pan or a crockpot; add meatballs and heat.
5
Variation: Instead of browning meatballs in a skillet with shortening, line a jelly roll pan with foil and brown meatballs in the oven. It's a lot less mess. Just throw away the foil after draining off the grease.
