Glazed Meat Balls – Sounds Weird, But Tastes REALLY Good!

1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp salt
1 small onion, chopped finely
1 egg

Mix all ingredients with your hands, and make small-ish meatballs. Put in a large skillet and brown at medium-high heat. If your meatballs are about inch round, it will only take about 10 minutes to brown.

Add 1 cup of chili sauce (I use Heinz or No Name brand) and 1 regular size jar of grape jelly. Stir gently (so you don’t wreck the meatballs). These ingredients will melt and glaze the meatballs. Cover the pan and let cook for about 15 to 20 minutes.

I serve these as appetizers, or as a main dish with rice. I’ve also made meatballs sandwiches. Very versatile and everyone loves them — especially kids.
