Cocktail Meatballs
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
13 ingredients
8-10 servings
This is the best cocktail meatball I've ever had. We didn't have chili sauce, but I found Quick Chili Sauce and made it homemade. Really a surprising but wonderful concoction of ingredients--sweet and spicy. We used blackberry jelly instead of grape and baked the meatballs in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes or so instead of cooking in shortening. We also put it all in the crockpot and watched them disappear. Recipe courtesy of Golden Heritage Cookbook fiftieth Anniversary/The Officers' Wives' Club of Fort Benning, Georgia (Mrs. Edward G. Bradshaw (Mackie).
