Meatballs from Her Mom

I named these "Meatballs from Her Mom" because they came from Amanda's mom at My picture above isn't great, but don't let that deter you from trying them. Just trust me that they were really, really good! I will make these again, and soon!

Meatballs from Her Mom
adapted from Amanda at We Heart Cupcakes

1 lb lean hamburger *lean is important because if you don't, then you're left with a lot of grease in the sauce!
1/2 onion minced
6-8 soda crackers *I used 1/2 sleeve of Ritz crackers
2 eggs
Jar of chili sauce *Made by Heinz 
1/2 jar grape jelly
juice from 1 lemon
salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350. Mix hamburger with eggs, crumbled crackers, salt and pepper and onion. In separate bowl mix chili sauce, jelly, juice. Spray casserole dish and pour in a little of the sauce to cover the bottom. Shape meatballs and drop into sauce. Pour the rest of the sauce over the meatballs evenly. Cover with foil and cook for 45 minutes. 

*You may also use this recipe for a crockpot. Cook on low for 6 hours.

Tried these last night and they were a total hit! Brian likes these more than Porcupine Meatballs. They were so tender. Of course I had to make adaptions because of the cracker crumbs so I ended up using about 3/4 cup quick oats instead. Great find!
