Cocktail Meatballs or Little Smokies

This is a super easy appetizer to put out at a party that is delicious! I added the lemon juice to help cut the excessive sweetness of the grape jelly - its your call.

  • 1 bag frozen original meatballs or 2 packages of little smokies cocktail sausages (watch for MSG) or homemade meatballs if you are feeling adventurous!
  • 2 bottles chili sauce
  • 2 cups grape jelly
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  1. Bake meatballs as directed on package (normally 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees).
  2. While those are baking, combine chili sauce, grape jelly & lemon juice in a pot. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. 
  3. Add meatballs and continue to simmer for the next hour. 
  4. Serve with toothpicks!

  • Option: combine all into crockpot and let simmer on high for an hour. (FYI - I tried this on low overnight and it burned the sausages beyond recognition; hence why the pic is of round 2 -> meatballs)
