REVIEW: recipe rating
This is one of those recipes that on paper people turn their nose up at but when you serve it to them they ooooh and ahhh over it because it's so good! There is never any left when I make it. I prefer to make the meatballs from scratch (you can so easily make up meatballs and freeze them!) but I've used storebought in a pinch many times and it works just as well. I highly recommend this recipe for any party regardless of the formality!

This is always a hit! I make it with the low sugar jelly and you can't tell the difference.

This recipe is as old as the hills but it's always a hit. Doesn't matter what kind of crowd you serve it to - young or old - they always eat it up.

A friend's aunt of mine used the crockpot style back in Christmas, and I've been looking for the simple recipe for this, and this is short and sweet, not to mention DELICIOUS! I can eat these as a meal itself, lol. Thanks =]
