A precious friend shared this recipe with me many years ago. She was an older and much wiser lady with whom I enjoyed visiting. Over time we shared quite a few interesting conversations about anything and everything in life. She shared this recipe with me one Christmas when she was preparing this dish for a Christmas party.
Scroll all the way down for the easy printable recipe which calls for one bag of Meatballs. I double the recipe using 2 Bags of meatballs, 2 Chili Sauce and one larger jar of jelly when feeding a crowd. Jam works too.
The flavor of these easy 3 Ingredient Meatballs is a bit of a sweet and savory bite.
Use Leftovers To Make Meatball Sub Sandwiches
Don’t toss any leftover meatballs you may have. I always cook more than I need because I’d rather have too many than not enough. Plus my hubby loves to enjoy Meatball Sub Sandwiches with the leftovers the next day.
Use your favorite Hoogie bread. Reheat the meatballs in the microwave. Top with a little shredded cheese and serve with pickles and chips.
