Quick Sweet and Sour Meatballs

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.

  4. I would think this would be too sweet and not tangy enough, does it turn out tangy at all? I have a sweet and sour meatball recipe that I use that has vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup and some other things in it that is really good, but this on looks so easy it would be nice to have another recipe on hand to use. But I would just be worried it wouldn’t have enough of the “sour” in it.
