Appetizer Meatballs


1 1/2 Lb. Ground Beef

1 1/2 Lb. Ground Chuck

1 envelope onion soup mix

3/4 C. dry bread crumbs

3 eggs

Salt, pepper & garlic powder to taste


1- 32oz. Bottle of catsup

1-6 to 8 oz. jar of pizza sauce

1-10oz. Jar grape jelly

2 tbsp. lemon juice


For make your own- beat eggs and soup & seasonings to mix well.  Add meats and bread crumbs, mix. Make tiny balls ( 12 doz.) Bake 350 degrees – 20 Min.

Mix catsup, pizza sauce, jelly and lemon juice. Stir and cook over low heat 20 Min.  Add meatballs  to sauce and simmer about 30 Min.

Quick Method:

Make sauce as directed but use frozen meatballs instead of homemade to save extra work.  Just thaw the frozen meatballs and add to sauce, then simmer as directed.  When I first started making these there were now such thing as ready-made meatballs.  That’s what I’m using this year.
