Party Meatballs

I remember the first time I had to bring a dish to a gathering with with my husband's family. It was pretty early on in our relationship and I really wanted to make a good impression.  I knew early on that Michael was the man I was going to marry and I wanted his family to like me.  It was a potluck dinner and they had all of the basics covered, so I knew I wanted to bring an appetizer.  Then I remembered these meatballs that my mom used to make. These were quick and easy and I felt that I had a winner. I was right they were a success. I think only two people said they didn't like them.  But my Michael's parents enjoyed them and most importantly Michael and his son loved them.  I usually only make these for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but occasionally I surprise the guys with them for dinner during the week and they devour them.  I usually make these in the slow cooker, but they can also be prepared on the stove or in the oven.

1 Bag Frozen Meatballs (about 40 in a bag)
1 12 Ounce Jar of Chili Sauce
1 16 Ounce Jar of Grape Jelly



Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Add meatballs.


Combine chili sauce and grape jelly. Pour over meatballs.


Cook on the low setting for four to six hours and then enjoy!
