Delicious Jack Daniels Grape Jelly Meatball Sauce

These grape jelly meatballs are a wonderful appetizer and they are straightforward to prepare too. When making meatballs grape jelly might not be the first ingredient that you think of using. It does, however, go very nicely in this grape jelly meatball recipe and the sweet fruity flavor goes wonderfully with the rich, meaty taste.

A1 sauce, Jack Daniels, garlic, onion, egg and more are combined for these flavorful and easy party appetizers. This is a good appetizer for a sit down dinner, rather than a buffet, because the meatballs are warm and sticky and will need to be eaten with a fork. If you do want to serve them at a buffet though, you can put a toothpick into each one so people can pick them up easily and make sure there are napkins not too far away.

If you are having fish, chicken, or something else for your main course, these meatballs make an attractive and tasty appetizer. Serve everyone a couple of meatballs and they are sure to remark on how delicious and unique they taste, and nobody will be able to identify all the ingredients in them! They are quite filling so two or three is sufficient for an appetizer.
