This is by far the easiest party recipe you’ll ever come across, just 3 simple ingredients!

Meatballs are a staple recipe at parties because they’re the perfect serving size for appetizers, easy to keep warm and taste great with a variety of sauces or toppings. This sweet and sour meatball recipe uses just three fast ingredients and can be prepared in the oven, on the stove-top, in an instant pot, or a slow-cooker. It all depends on how fast you want them prepared!

Normally we’d at least have a batch of homemade meatballs in the freezer, but we were out and needed to whip together a dish to bring to a last minute tailgating invite, so we cheated a bit.

If you watched the video you might have noticed my handy-dandy utensil rest! It works wonders at keeping sloppy utensils corralled in one spot and has raised edges to keep sticky messes from spreading to the countertops.

You’ll Need:
1 Jar of Grape Jelly (12 oz)
1 Jar of Chili Sauce (12 oz)
2 lbs of frozen Meatballs

In a crockpot or slow-cooker combine the jelly and the chili sauce. Whisk to combine. Add the frozen meatballs, stir to coat.

Heat on high for about 4 hours until the sauce is thick and bubbly and the meatballs are hot throughout.

If you’d prefer to heat them on the stovetop, combine all of the ingredients in a large saucepan, cover and simmer about 20-22 minutes until the meatballs are hot throughout.

  1. I know the answer because I used to work the straight 168 when I did home care. You would work 7-24 hour shifts in a row. Then have anywhere from 2-7 days off this calling it the straight 168. Don’t miss that at all
