Super Bowl Recipes: Party Meatballs

We are still one full week away from Super Bowl XLVI, but that doesn't mean it's too early to plan for a proper party to watch the New York Giants battle the New England Patriots for the second time in five years in the biggest sporting event in the world. Super Bowl parties mean food, and if you are looking for a quick and easy dish to bring to a Super Bowl party, meatballs are the way to go.

There are literally three ingredients in this crock pot recipe, and when told the details most people will be skeptical that the meatballs will be edible. The three ingredients:

  1. Grape jelly
  2. Chili sauce
  3. Frozen meatballs

Use equal parts jelly and chili sauce. Substituting cocktail sauce for chili sauce is okay, but no other jelly but grape will do. Mix the jelly and chili sauce together in the crock pot and heat on low for a few hours, until done.

While it may not sound appealing to combine grape jelly and chili sauce, the sweet and sour combination works, especially as a last minute, zero-effort Super Bowl food choice. A suggestion: stick with the name "Party Meatballs" and let the flavor do the talking.
