Happy New Year Party Meatballs! You have plenty of time to prepare these for New Year’s. And if you missed this post, make ’em for the weekend. May you have a happy and prosperous New Year.

Ingredients (Recipe can easily be doubled)

  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 12 ounce jar of chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 1 jar of grape jelly (10 ounce size)


  1. Mix the first four ingredients together with a fork. (Try not to compact too much). Shape into balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
  2. Combine chili sauce, lemon juice, and jelly in a bowl and mix. Pour into a casserole dish and add meatballs.
  3. Cover with foil and bake at 350° F. for one hour, remove foil and cook an additional 30 minutes.

Easy, huh? They’ve never failed me yet.
