This is a variation on my Mamma Mia Meatballs. Makes an elegant appetizer served with fancy toothpicks.
You could also hand make your meatballs with ground beef and cracker crumbs. I just find the frozen ones quicker.

Ingredients

2 lb
frozen meatballs, any type
1 small
jar apricot preserves
1/4 c
hot pepper jelly
1 c
ketchup
2 Tbsp
soy sauce
3/4 tsp
crystallized or fresh ginger, chopped (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350°F. Place meatballs in an oven proof casserole dish and heat in oven while preparing sauce.
2
Stir together the apricot preserves, hot pepper jelly, ketchup, soy sauce and ginger in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, then simmer 5 minutes. Pour over meatballs.
3
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until sauce has thickened and meatballs glisten. Stir once or twice during cooking. These just get better the longer they cook.

Optional: may sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds before serving.
