I made these for our company's open house and they were gone fast. Loved them!

GREAT recipe! wonderful flavor. my brothers love these meatballs! instead of spending a bunch of time browning the balls in a pan, i simply put them on a greased, foil lined baking sheet and place them in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes. i also used apricot jelly instead of grape. made these meatballs two times this week!
