"Sounds a bit odd, but it's fantastic. My best friend gave me the recipe so I made it and it is incredible. She wanted me to share the recipe, so here it is." — KRYSTALK

3 (14 ounce) cans
1 (10 ounce) jar
freshly ground black pepper
1 (16 ounce) package
hoagie rolls, split lengthwise
shredded mozzarella cheese
I've made this (less the hoagie buns) several times as a hot appetizer at parties. I put the pizza sauce and jelly in a crock pot and let them melt together on high, then add a bag of frozen meatballs, cook for about 30 minutes, turn down to low and let party goers dip as they wish. Always a hit and super easy!
Way too sweet for my son and I, we couldn't eat it all, but my husband said it was only a tad too sweet. Would use only a tbsp of jelly if I make this again.
I tried this recipe for my family, and we all loved it. I fried some onions and red and green peppers on the stove and added them to the subs. Sprinkled mozzerella cheese on top, we loved it. Thanks for the great recipe.
Wonderful recipe! I used pepper jelly instead of apple jelly because I had some leftover from the holidays. Based on the other reviews that indicated this made a lot of sauce, I used a full bag of frozen, Italian meatballs, so this made at least 3 meals! The sauce got better and better each time we had it. Kids & hubby loved it! Made the sauce, then put it all in the crockpot to cook on slow all day. So easy!
This was excellent! I made these to go with my son's pirate-themed birthday party (we called them 'cannon ball sandwiches, LOL). My in-laws thought they were very good, and my MIL even took the leftovers and made spaghetti. I did them in the crock pot on low for about 5 hours, and I added an extra bag of meatballs to the sauce because some reviewers had mentioned this made a lot of sauce. Also, I could only find an 18-oz jar of apple jelly so I used a little less than half. I didn't think that the sauce was too sweet, but a perfect balence of sweet/tangy. Thanks for the post! We enjoyed this very much!
I made this last night for my husband and he LOVED it. I hollewed out the buns a little so that the meatballs wouldn't fall out and it held more of the yummy sauce. Excellent!
Wow, excellent sauce! I cut back just a little bit on the apple jelly based on other reviews and used three heaping tablespoons instead of 10 oz. I put all the ingredients in a slow cooker along with a double batch of "The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have" on this site. This does make a lot of sauce, so don't hesitate to add more meatballs than this recipe calls for. I cooked the sauce in the slow cooker for about five hours. Great meal for after church on Sunday.
I scaled this recipe to serve 3. It was so easy, delicious and unique. I was skeptical with ingredients but everyone loved these grinders! I'm making them again today and I won't be scaling the recipe down. Yum! Thank-you Krystal
