Something old With Something New

These meatballs are simmered in a homemade chili sauce which was give a special snap with the flavor of grape jelly. Yes I said grape jelly, nothing can ever go wrong with grape jelly. This is a perfect appetizer to please the crowd of friends or family gatherings. This is perfect for the tailgate parties during the football games. So make a batch for the Super Bowl this year!
