Mom's Meatballs

If you prefer juicier meatballs, just double the sauce ingredients. The longer they soak in the sauce the more they take on the flavor.

"I first tasted this dish at a family wedding nearly 30 years ago, and I have been making them for every special occasion since," says Renee T. of Apopka, Fl. "My family never gets tired of them; our youngest daughter has also become the meatball queen at her office parties and my husband loves telling people what makes the sauce because it’s such a unique combination."

For the meatballs:
3 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup milk
1 cup bread crumbs
2 eggs
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 small onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon pepper

For the sauce:
1 (10-ounce) jar grape jelly
1 (12-ounce) jar chili sauce

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix all meatball ingredients in large bowl and roll into balls about the size of a golf ball. Place meatballs at least a finger-width apart on large cookie sheet with sides (so grease will not run onto oven floor).

2. Bake meatballs for 15 minutes, then remove from pan, and dispose of excess grease. Put meatballs into large pot.

3. In another small saucepan, melt grape jelly and then add chili sauce. Pour over meatballs and serve.
