I remembered that Joe likes Swedish Meatballs. I've never made them before and I only ate them once when they were served as hors d'oeuvres at a wedding. So, I really had no clue how to make them.
Years ago, someone told me that the secret ingredient in their Swedish Meatballs recipe is grape jelly. So, I googled Swedish Meatballs with grape jelly.
I found many different recipes for Swedish Meatballs. I found a few that I would like to try in the future, but this time, I chose the recipe that looked the easiest and had the least ingredients.
The original recipe, posted over at Good Eats 'n Sweet Treats, includes homemade meatballs and I really prefer to serve homemade to my family, but for now, my plan was to use up those store-bought frozen meatballs.
Whether you decide to use frozen meatballs from the store or homemade meatballs that you froze during your last OAMC session, this three ingredient recipe really couldn't be any easier!
Crock Pot Swedish Meatballs
- frozen meatballs
- 12 oz. Heinz Chili Sauce
- 18 oz. grape jelly
- Pour chili sauce and grape jelly in cold crock pot insert.
- Stir until well mixed.
- Add frozen meatballs and stir to coat meatballs with sauce.
- Cover and cook on High for 1 hour.
- Stir, reduce heat to low and cook for 3-5 hours or until meatballs are heated through.
- I used the cocktail sized meatballs since that was what we had in the freezer. I'm sure this recipe would work well with the larger sized meatballs as well.
- I served these as a meal with buttered egg noodles. But they would make a great appetizer for a party or sporting event!
