Easy Cocktail Meatballs

This is one of my husband’s favorite appetizers.  I know the ingredients sound a bit weird, but trust me, they’re good! You could always make your own meatballs, if you have that kind of time on your hands.

I know many people who like to prepare this with jellied cranberry sauce in place of the grape jelly, especially at the holidays.  It’s a great recipe for parties and other gatherings since it feeds a crowd and can be kept warm in a slow cooker.

Who Dished It Up First: I honestly can’t remember where I first came across this recipe.  I vaguely remember a friend once telling me about “the meatballs made with grape jelly and cocktail sauce.”  I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that this recipe was included in the very first Crock-Pot instruction manual back in 1971.

  1. I make these with strawberry jam and chili sauce for over 20 years. I also make the meatballs by hand, adding roasted garlic to the meat and savory spices. Wonderful.!!
