Grape Jelly Meatballs

These easy and delicious Grape Jelly Meatballs are a perfect appetizer for game day.  They are also great served with rice as a main dish.  I made the ones in this post for today’s Super Bowl Sunday game.

You only need three simple ingredients to make this delicious appetizer: grape jelly, chili sauce, and frozen cooked meatballs.  I used the Cooked Perfect brand of meatballs.  They are flame broiled and bite size and taste homemade.

Some recipes use BBQ sauce or ketchup instead of the chile sauce, but I prefer the flavor of the chili sauce.  I used the Heinz brand but you can use your favorite brand.

Grape Jelly Meatballs

1 jar (18 ounces) grape jelly
1 bottle (12 ounce) Heinz Chili Sauce
32 ounces frozen fully cooked meatballs such as Cooked Perfect Homestyle Meatballs

In a small bowl, combine the grape jelly and chili sauce.  Set aside.  Place the frozen meatballs in the slow cooker.  Add the grape jelly and chili sauce mixture.  Stir until the meatballs are coated in the grape jelly and chili sauce mixture.

Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours, stirring halfway through cooking.  Serve as an appetizer or over rice as a main dish.  Store leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator.

I’m not a fan of football, but I do enjoy the food we make and entertainment for the Super Bowl games.  One of the entertainers this year Is rapper Eminem (Marshall Mathers) a Detroit native and star of the movie, “8Mile”.  The rest of the entertainment lineup sounds great also.

While it will be hot where the big game will be played, that is not the case here in West Michigan.  The current temperature here is 19°F with a lot of snow still on the ground.
