It’s Championship Weekend in College Football! Are you looking for a simple snack for watching all the games? These meatballs are so simple and only 3 ingredients. All you have to do is mix everything up and simmer it on the stove for about 25 minutes. You could use a slow cooker if you wish. The slow cooker would be great for keeping the meatballs warm during any football and holiday parties.
The first time I had these meatballs was several years ago at a Christmas party. I absolutely loved them! I could not stop eating them. I made Chicken Legs get some extra on his plate so I could eat extra without people noticing. I was shocked when I found out how they were made. I can promise you I would have never tried them if I had known they had grape jelly in them. Yuck! Who knew it would be SO good!

  1. I haven't had these in years! We did the grape jelly with Heinz Chile sauce and with Sweet Baby Rays. Also added some hot pepper jelly to it like Lynn Huntley does. Gives a nice zing to some of the batches.

  2. I remember having these at parties in the 1970s (Yikes! That long ago? LOL) The sauce is also very good to pour over a meatloaf and bake.

  3. My mother used to make meatballs very similar to these! Wow, I hadn't thought about those in a while. Instant craving!

  4. I have made made these many times, but have never used frozen meatballs before…great idea:) I like to add 1/3 cup hot pepper jelly the sauce! Nice and spicy:)
