1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp worchesteshire sauce
1/4 cup shortening
1 (12 ounce) bottled chili sauce
1 (10 ounce) jar grape jelly
1 egg


1. Mix ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, milk, egg, parsley, salt, pepper, worchestershire, and gently shape into cocktail size meatballs.
2. Melt shortening in large skillet, brown meatballs, then remove. Pour off fat.
3. Heat chili sauce and grape jelly in skillet, stirring occaisonally until jelly is melted.
