Michelle's Dad's Party Meatballs

READY IN: 5hrs 15mins
Recipe by DeniseBC

I got this recipe at my wedding shower and it is a great hit. DH isn't allowed to bring anything else to his potlucks at work and everyone looks for them at church potlucks too! Really easy, but really good! We prefer all beef meatballs, but that is just personal preference. Pepper jelly is good if you like a bit spicy. I often use all the little bits of jelly left in the fridge to equal 12oz. DH likes to use apricot jelly the best. If you have any leftover, they are great over noodles.

These were fabulous!! I took your advice and used apricot preserves, and I used Sweet Baby Ray's sweet and spicy BBQ sauce. The spicy BBQ sauce was perfect with the sweet apricot preserves and pineapple. I will definitely make these again!
