1 1/2
Cups Chili Sauce (or alternative—see below)
Cups Grape Jelly
Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
Teaspoons Garlic Powder
Pinch Cayenne
Pounds Frozen Meatballs (or homemade—see below recipe)
Pinch Parsley, minced
Martin’s Long Potato Rolls, for serving
  1. In a slow cooker, combine the chili sauce, grape jelly, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, and cayenne; mix well.

    Note: If you don’t have chili sauce, substitute 1 ½ cups thick BBQ sauce or combine the following: 1 ½ cups ketchup, 2 tbsp. brown sugar, 1 tbsp. vinegar, 1 dash cinnamon, and 1 dash allspice.

  2. Add frozen meatballs to slow cooker and stir until well-coated with sauce.

    Alternately, for homemade meatballs:

    – Combine 1-2 pounds lean ground beef with 1 beaten egg, 3 tbsp. dry bread crumbs, 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper; mix thoroughly. Shape into about 32 one-ounce meatballs or 64 half-ounce meatballs. 

    – Arrange on a prepared baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees F for 12 to 18 minutes, or until cooked through; drain grease.

    – Continue recipe with steps 2-4.

  3. Cook on low heat for 3-4 hours.

  4. Garnish with parsley and serve on Martin’s Long Potato Rolls with extra sauce, if desired. Enjoy!
