Christmas dinner is our big event, a meal that tops the year with a perfect rib roast and the trimmings.
Christmas Eve is more laid back in our family. We save ourselves for the Christmas Day dinner so we just have appetizers the night before.
One of my family’s favorite is Sweet and Sour Meatball. The secret ingredient is grape jelly. It doesn’t sound appetizing yet is the tastiest you’d ever try.
The meatballs can be homemade using any regular recipe or just buy a bag at your favorite grocery store. One of best meatballs I’ve tried with this recipe are from IKEA.
It’s a super easy recipe and good for all holiday parties.
Sweet and Sour Meatballs
1 ( 3 pounds) package of frozen meatballs or homemade meatballs
2 jars of grape jelly (32 ounces)
2 jars of Heinz Chili Sauce
1. Mix grape jelly, chili sauce and meatballs in a crock pot or regular pot. (A crock pot is good because you can keep the meatballs warm during the evening.)
2. Simmer for 45 minutes until sauce thickens.
