"This is a great appetizer. My grandma used to make these for holiday gatherings. So easy to make! Keep meatballs and polish sausage in crock pot for serving; people can grab them with toothpicks or a slotted spoon."

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly-salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the kielbasa and return to a boil. Cook until hot, 8 to 10 minutes; drain and cut into bite sized pieces. Place the kielbasa into a slow cooker; stir in the salsa, grape jelly, water, and lemon juice.
  2. Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a mixing bowl; mix in the onion, ground beef, salt, pepper, and crushed cornflakes. Mix with your hands until evenly incorporated. Roll the mixture into balls the size of a large walnut; place into the slow cooker.
  3. Set the slow cooker on High and cook until the meatballs are no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour.
