Sherry's Story

Another recipe I got from my sister...she usually makes this at our family gatherings. I like to make it for New Years.


1 jar(s)
(16 ounce) grape jelly
(12 ounce) bottle heinz® chili sauce
(2 pound) bag frozen, pre-cooked, cocktail-size meatballs.
remember to thaw out meatballs before cooking

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine sauces in a large saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring until smooth. Add thawed meatballs. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until meatballs are heated through, stirring occasionally. If you have more time you can cook them in a slow cooker, just combine sauces and pour over meatballs. Cover and cook 4 hours on HIGH.
I sometimes use the Little Smokies in place of the meatballs. Both ways are delicious....

I also have had this recipe for years......I changed to using Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce with the grape jelle, because my Hubby likes it that way best (and he is a stickler for me using Welch's Grape Jelly, he thinks it the only kind to use).

And NO neither one of us work for Welch's.

Thanks for sharing your recipe! A co-worker brought these to one of our potlucks and it was delicious. We have moved since then and I lost the recipe. Lost is found, lol. I am going to take it to a going away party for friends snow-birding South for the winter.

You saved me - I had this recipe years ago - actually came on a jar of Grape Jelly. Was looking for it recently and wasn't quite sure if it was BBQ sauce or chili sauce to use with the jelly. Thanks have it now.
