Nutritional information



Mix first five ingredients well, adding more bread crumbs a little at a time as needed to get the right consistency for meatballs. (or just start with your own favorite meatball recipe). Shape into ¾ inch balls and fry until browned and cooked through. Remove from heat and drain on paper towels. Meatballs can be frozen and then thawed/heated on game day. To prepare the sauce? Easy. Just dump the whole jar of chili sauce and the whole jar of grape jelly in a microwave safe bowl, cook on high power for a minute at a time, stirring after every minute, until ingredients are well blended. Pour the sauce over the heated meatballs, stir to coat, and serve from a chafing dish with toothpicks. The easiest make-ahead appetizer recipe EVER!
