Using the stuffing mix makes the meatballs easier to prepare. I like the idea of baking them to exclude any extra fat. Instead of the grape jelly, I used one can of cranberry sauce - makes the sauce tangier and less sweet. My husband is not usually crazy about my trying new recipes, but he liked these!
For the holidays I am using this recipe with a coating of cranberry sauce and Kraft Original BBQ sauce as shown in the 11/09 issue of "food&family". It is delicious. A real plus is being able to make ahead and freeze.
We love this recipe! I have substituted cranberry sauce for the grape jelly and used marinara/spaghetti sauce - so it is not spicy. That is what makes this recipe so great, you can change it to your tastes! Using the slow cooker for serving works out perfectly for these meatballs too. If you freeze any (if you have any leftovers) be sure to lay them out on a cookie sheet so they won't stick together in a big ball. Makes it easier when you want to re-warm and serve what you need.
This recipe is really easy - after cooking the meatballs, I mix it all together and serve it in a crockpot. During the holidays, I substitute canned cranberry sauce for the grape jelly.
This is an excellent recipe ! It's easy and delicious. You can also put cocktail franks in the sauce instead of meatballs...I've made it many times and it's always a hit.
