Sweet & Sour Meatballs

I promised no Sunday chicken recipes so here's what I made today ~

Sweet & Sour Meatballs

1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 large egg
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 12 ounce chili sauce
1 cup grape jelly
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Mix together meats, egg, ricotta cheese, Panko bread crumbs and spices.  Roll into balls and place on a greased baking sheet.  Bake for one half hour or until cooked through at 350°F .
While baking, mix together chili sauce, grape jelly and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes in crock pot on low heat.

Remove meatballs from oven and add to sauce.  Let cook on low for 1 hour before serving.
