I know it's cheating but...... buy bag of frozen meatballs, put in crock pot along with a bottle of chili sauce and some grape jelly. Let them cook for an hour or longer and you will be pleased. :wow:

I have a similar recipe that uses hot mustard.
How is that cheating?

Making the meatballs would be too difficult for me, so I need to take a shortcut. But so be it. Hot mustard would be interesting. :thumb up:

Appetizer Tree-:

Ingredients:

* 1 fresh pineapple
* Edam cheese, cut into 1/2-inch squares
* Cheddar cheese, cut into 1/2-inch squares
* Summer sausage or pepperoni, cut into 1/2-inch squares
* Cooked ham, cut into 1/2-inch squares
* Fruit, cut into 1/2-inch squares
* Toothpicks

Preparation:


Select a pineapple that freely stands upright. Slice off the green top. Cut away the outer skin, then carve into desired shape.

Beginning at the bottom of the carved pineapple, use toothpicks to attach cheese, salami, and ham to the pineapple in a decorative pattern. You can alternate colors or put similar colors in separate rings.

Feel free to use your favorite fruits, vegetables, cheeses, and or/cooked meats in any combination. Modify the colors of the foods to fit your party or holiday theme.

What is the purpose of the jelly, and mswerb, is your post speaking of substituting something for the mustard or in addition to, or what?

A little sweetness to offset the chili sauce. Just was thinking about having some of them again as I graze this weekend. You won't be disappointed. :thumb up:

I was at Target before thanksgiving and they used a bottle of chili sauce with a can of cranberry sauce. It was pretty good. Probably somewhat similar to this grape jelly nonsense you are talking about here.

But for pete's sake make your own damn meatballs. Those frozen ones are freaky.

I mean, I don't know that I need to post this for people to know how to do it, but fried Cauliflower or Zucchini is one of my favs....

Clean and cut up the Cauliflower and boil 1/2 to 3/4 of the way to soften but not fully boiled.

3 eggs beaten with a small bit of milk

Italian bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese mixed 50/50 or 60/40....

Bread it and fry it in a deep fryer or fry at low heat in a pan with alot of butter

Toss some salt on after you pull it.

Super simple, but flippin good appetizers man.

Smoking some wings, finishing them on the grill, topping with some variation of buffalo sauce, none of the recipes are confirmed yet.

Also making some homemade calzones. Gonna be out of bounds.
