My niece Amber and her kids came for a visit yesterday so I got busy in the kitchen and whipped up way too much food!! I had these in the freezer and decided to throw them in the crock pot sort of at the last minute. They were a surprisingly good addition to our dinner. You could serve them over pasta or rice or just straight up on their own with a meal or as an appetizer. I made soup yesterday too and Zach was just putting his meatballs right into the soup. They can be prepared as a freezer meal which is really handy as well but they could not be any simpler to put together, either for dinner or as a freezer meal.
1 (12 oz) jar chili sauce
1 (16 – 18 oz) jar grape jelly
1 (2 pound) package frozen meatballs (I found these at Sam’s Club for a pretty good price and there were enough meatballs for 2 meals)
1 Combine chili sauce and jelly in crock pot and stir until smooth.
2 Add meatballs and stir to coat meatballs. Cook on low for 2 – 5 hours.
To prepare as a freezer meal:
1 Stir together chili sauce and jelly in small bowl. Place meatballs in gallon size Ziploc bag and pour sauce mixture into bag. Stir to combine and freeze.
2 When ready to prepare, remove from freezer and let thaw in fridge overnight. Then follow instructions above to prepare.
