Sweet/Sour Meatball Recipe

Hello! It's been a while for a Recipe Swap - sorry! I had made a point to post a recipe weekly - I'm trying! This week's recipe is a weird one that I acquired when living in Alabama from my sweet ex-sister-in-law (hey Nee'!) It's an odd combination of items (grape jelly, chile sauce, mustard...) over meatballs or little smokies and it's VERY tasty!

We're having a Potluck Lunch (LOVE IT!) at school today and I've fixed these recipes - needed something for a crockpot to stay warm!
Also made a "Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake" - using the PW's recipe . OMG - this chocolate cake is truly an AWESOME recipe and VERY "easy-peasy" - totally! If you haven't made this recipe - you really should! It's a recipe that I've had forever - the Pioneer Woman just makes it so easy with all her step-by-step pictures. I've seen it made with sour cream or adding vinegar... I choose the version with buttermilk! I know- ARGH! - buttermilk - but in cooking... buttermilk is often a "must" for a great taste - to drink by itself - YUK! Not for me! hee hee!

Here's a recipe for a great appetizer or a good potluck meat to take in a crockpot!

Sweet/Sour Meatballs
1 jar (10 oz.) Chili Sauce (I like Heinz)
1 cup Grape Jelly
1 to 3 teaspoons Yellow Mustard
A sprinkle of Garlic Salt
A bag of frozen Meatballs
(or a batch of home cooked)
or use a bag or two of the "Lil' Smokie" cocktail sausages

Combine all in a crockpot, heat to melt the jelly and other ingredients - serve warm!


Recipes have been a weekly post for me for almost a year - WOW! The reason to start was to meet the request of several female students that wanted recipes to fill their recipe boxes for future uses! Also my oldest son in Alabama, craves his home cooked meals sometimes, and he wants recipes... so this was the reason. I've been approached by http://www.foodista.com to submit some of my recipes and to enter a recipe contest - are any of you acquainted with this website? If so, I sure would like your take on it - please! It's a online cooking encyclopedia - where you can edit the recipes?!?! Also they've got an upcoming cookbook to be published featuring Best of Food Blog recipes - it simply could be a "money maker" for someone - I've got to do some research first! Thanks for the help!

Hope you are having a great week! Take care and thanks for stopping by! Hug the ones you love the most!
