One of my favorite modern convenience foods is frozen meatballs. Last weekend I bought a big bag of them from Costco in preparation for our family's Crockpot Potluck after General Conference. Just before we headed off downtown for the afternoon session of conference in the Conference Center I threw a pint of homemade chili sauce into the crockpot, stirred in about a cup of homemade sour cherry jelly, and filled the pot up with frozen meatballs. (I used about half of the bag). I stirred it all around a bit to coat the meatballs, then set the crockpot on low and left it to do its thing while we were gone. So simple and easy, and . . . the meatballs were voted the favorite dish of the evening!
There were actually a few left at the end of the evening, so I brought them home, and put them in the fridge. We've warmed them up in a saucepan on the stove top for a quick dinner several nights this week, adding more meatballs to the sauce as they get low. Serve with rice, noodles or potoates and your choice of veggies and/or salad. Yep, I love the meatballs!
