I got the idea for these Quick Sweet and Sour Meatballs from a recipe that a friend gave me. It turned out to be a quick and easy dish that the family loves. My daughter is especially a fan. She asks for this as a main dish all the time. Even on her birthday!
When I use this as a main dish I serve over cooked rice. However, you can also use it as an appetizer. If you use it as an appetizer, I would reduce the ketchup and grape jelly to 1/2 cup each instead of the 1 cup. You don’t need as much sauce if you aren’t serving it over rice.
To make these are as easy as adding the ketchup and jelly to a skillet. Then cook until the jelly melts and combines with the ketchup. Then you add in the thawed frozen meatballs and cook until they are warmed. It’s as easy as that.
