These meatballs tasted as good as they smelled! We loved the flavor of the grape jelly/ chili sauce combo-- it gave the meatballs a yummy and unique twang. These would be a great appetizer, or gameday snack also.


I ate an embarrassing amount of these meatballs, and I'm thrilled it's football season so I can make them again. The rest of the family loved them, too, and the kids particularly enjoyed eating them with a toothpick.
