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

How to Make Cocktail Meatballs

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.
