The fall TV season maybe starting but it seems like most Sundays afternoons and Monday nights around here have been taken over by kickoffs, the sounds of helmets crashing and player stats. Mr.S. and the kidlets are in sports heaven. But even rabid fans need to eat and if you're looking for something easy to fix up try these classic sweet and sour meatballs. All you need are 3 ingredients and a crockpot. The combo sounds odd (and maybe even a bit gross), I know...but it's delicious when it all melds together--really.
Sweet 'n Sour Meatballs
2 lb. bag frozen meatballs (plain), I like to let mine thaw in the fridge overnight
1 12oz. jar Heinz chili sauce (usually found in the ketchup aisle)
1 18oz. jar grape jelly
- Combine chili sauce & grape jelly in crock pot and mix until blended well.
- Add in meatballs. Stir so all meatballs are coated well.
- Cover and set crockpot to low. Cook for 2 to 4 hours. Stir occasionally.
- Place crockpot on dining room table and go watch DVR'd new episodes of the "Modern Family" and "The Good Wife" in the other room and hope that the football game doesn't go into OT. ;)
