Cocktail Meatballs II Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 5)
Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2004
I've received high praise from people who entertain regularly and take pride in their own preparation of appetizers such as these. I often substitute frozen meatballs when short on time, and on one such occasion I was shocked that a woman who manages a very upscale restaurant in the area made an extra effort to rave about this dish (I was simply hosting a small crowd for a big college football game). I was almost embarrassed to reveal it's simplicity. I usually adjust the recipe to the same sauce ingredients but replace the homemade meatballs w/ caramelized frozen and throw it all in the slow cooker. The handmade meatballs are superior, but I seem to get the same compliments regardless.

Made these with turkey and they turned out too dry. Also, the sauce was REALLY spicy & I had to add 1 1/2 jars of jelly plus honey (ran out of jelly) to offset the spiciness. However, the end result of the sauce was DELICIOUS. I'll make the sauce again (although using less chili sauce) and will need to figure out how to make the meatballs more moist.

It was great, a little bit too spicy for me, but my husband loved it. Now it's his new favorite dinner!

I adapted this recipe for the crockpot. I used these ingredients, with the addition of fresh parsley from my garden, and baked them in glass dishes at 350 for around 13 minutes. I stored them overnight in the fridge, and the next day, I simmered the meatballs in the crockpot on low with the combined jelly/sauce for about 3 1/2 hours. They were a big hit at the open house for which I was preparing them!

The sauce is awesome, toooooo much bread crumbs in the meat! I'll cut the bread crumbs in half next time! My 3 year old PICKY nephew twins had seconds! My husband really liked the sauce, just complained about "whatever I put in the meatball that was like bread" my daughter thinks the sauce would be great on chicken, I'll try that also!

I have made these meatballs several times - My husband & daughter love them. There is nothing hard at all about the recipe, just takes a little bit of time to roll up all them meatballs!
