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.
