This is a recipe that I got from one of my great aunts many years ago. You can keep it warm in a crock pot or a saucepan. The basic meatball recipe could be used for a variety of other dishes, such as spaghetti.
1 lb ground chuck
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp finely chopped onion (opt)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Worchestershire sauce
Combine ingredients, using your hands. Shape into desired size balls. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes. Drain on paper towels before adding to sauce. Yield: 4 servings
1 jar grape jelly
1 jar chili sauce
Combine and heat in a saucepan or in a crockpot. When jelly is dissolved and sauce is well-blended, add meatballs.
I made the meatballs on the right. My cousin Dana made the ones on the left. Hers look better. And they are lined up perfectly.
I nearly tripled the ingredients and it made 70 meatballs. They have a very tangy, interesting flavor.
