Venison Party Meatballs

Main Dishes


1 lb. ground venison (bacon burger can also be used)
8 to 12 oz. chili sauce
8 to 12 oz. grape jelly
Salt and pepper*
1 egg
Worcestershire sauce*
Dale’s Seasoning*
Dried minced onion (optional)
Bread crumbs (optional)
Instant potato flakes (optional)


Combine chili sauce and grape jelly in a saucepan, and simmer until jelly is completely melted and blended into the chili sauce. Set aside. Knead all other ingredients into the ground meat. Use the Worcestershire and Dale’s sparingly. Unless fat has been added, venison is dry and will fall apart. Bread crumbs and/or instant potato flakes help hold it together. Roll the meat mixture into small meatballs and brown them in a skillet with oil. Be careful handling them to prevent crumbling until they are cooked. After browning, place meatballs on a paper towel laid in a platter and allow them to drain. Put sauce and meatballs into a slow cooker and cook on low to medium for approximately 2 hours, or until the meatballs are thoroughly cooked.
  * Add to or substitute other seasonings if desired.
