I cheated and used frozen turkey meatballs. My husband and son went crazy for these sweet and sour meatballs! Can't wait to make them at camp for a snack to munch on. Just put everything in the crockpot on low and enjoy them all day! Great also for a pot luck supper. Read More

This is the recipe we always use except we use equal amounts of chili sauce and grape jelly and they are fantastic. I can't imagine using three times more chili sauce than jelly. Also for all you people who use frozen meatballs - you don't know what you're missing. Frozen meatballs have a coating on them to help preserve them and the sauce doesn't really penetrate them like it would a homemade meatball. Read More

I have been making this for years but only use 1 jar of chili sauce & 1/2 of a large or all of a small jar of jelly per pound of meatballs. I sometimes add a small can of sauerkraut! I use frozen meatballs most of the time. Read More
