Meatballs with Grape Jelly

Christmas Eve would not be the same without Dad's meatball appetizers.  These are wonderful! 

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup cornflakes, crushed
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp pepper
2 eggs, slightly beaten

1 (6 oz) jar grape jelly (1/2 c.)
2 TBS lemon juice
1 (12 oz) bottle chili sauce (1 1/2 c.)

Combine meat mixture; shape into 1" balls and place on an ungreased 10x15x1 pan.  Bake in oven at 375° for 25-30 minutes.  Combine sauce in a large pan.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes stirring occasionally.  Add meatballs to sauce; stir to coat.  Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes; stirring occasionally.

Keep warm in a crockpot. 

Serves 34 people (2 ea)
