The Best Meatballs Ever

I can't believe that it is Super Bowl weekend and I haven't posted one thing about all the yummy party food you can make! Even if you hate football you should have party food on Sunday. Because you CAN!!

One of my FAVORITE party appetizers involves a VERY complicated family recipe. I am pretty sure it is supposed to be a family secret, but I will share it with you because I love you.

You start by going here:
and buying their frozen meatballs. The Kirklands brand in a big bag. Italian Style. They are YUMMY!

You could make your own, but buying theirs is MUCH easier! And it is part of the family recipe.

Once you have your meatballs you put about 2 lbs of them in here:

Add the entire bottle of this:

a cup of this:

and let them cook until the meatballs aren't frozen anymore.

Best meatball in the world! I promise!

This super secret family recipe can also be found on the Heinz site here. But instead of grape jelly, they use a can of this:

I am going to have to give that a try. But not this Sunday. Because I already bought the grape jelly!

We always do the grape jelly and spicy mustard one. I'm going to remember to try and do this one someday.

Ha! I'm doing these for Cole's birthday party next weekend. Those meatballs also make excellent meatball subs with a 4 cheese jarred tomato sauce and some mozza on top.

Ooh, I had these at an honest to goodness cocktail reception in Alabama- waiters in tuxes, soft music, beaded dresses, the works! They were so good...I was SHOCKED when my great-aunt told me what was in the sauce!
