Grape Jelly Meatballs Recipe – Crock pot Recipe classic


This past Thanksgiving we went to a cousins’ house for a tapas party and I tried my first meatball cooked in grape jelly and chili sauce. I have to say it sounds gross but it was very good. She used a pack of turkey meatballs along with a large jar of grape jelly and chili sauce – you can’t get much easier then that. This recipe is a classic and sure to become an instant party hit.
