Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes

Sweet and Sour Meatballs topped with cheese!


For the meatballs:

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • ¾ cup plain breadcrumbs
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 6 cranks fresh ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

For the sauce:

  • 2 cup chili sauce
  • 1 cup grape jelly
  • 1 ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. In a large bowl, mix meatball ingredients until fully combined (I use my hands).  Roll into 40 large meatballs (about 1 ½-2inch in size). Space evenly onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  2. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for about 25 minutes.
  3. In a 2 ½ qt baking dish, combine chili sauce and grape jelly, whisk until smooth. Add cooked meatballs, stirring gently. Cover with foil and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes, until sauce is bubbly.
  4. Remove foil and top with shredded cheese. Bake an additional 5-10 minutes until cheese is completely melted. Serve with toothpicks and enjoy.


  • You can freeze the meatballs after baking and store them until ready to use.
  • To make this a meal, serve over cooked egg noodles or rice!
