Prep: 5 mins. Bake: 20 mins. Makes: 10 servings
1 16oz. pkg. frozen cooked meatballs (32)
1/2 cup apple jelly
4 Tbsp. spicy brown mustard
4 Tbsp. whiskey or apple juice
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
5-10 dashes bottled Hot Pepper sauce
Preheat oven to 350F. Place meatballs in a single layer in a shallow baking pan.
Bake, uncovered, in preheated oven about 20 minutes or until heated through.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan stir together apple jelly, mustard, whiskey, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce. Cook and stir over medium heat until jelly melts and mixture bubbles. Using a slotted spoon, transfer meatballs from baking pan to saucepan with jelly mixture; stir gently to coat. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
