Waffle fries (frozen or fresh)
Cheese of your choice
Use a waffle fry in place of the bun, add a 1/4 piece of cheese, a small, flat beef patty and use a toothpick to hold the mini cheeseburger together. Bake them in the oven.

2 bottles (12 oz. each) chili sauce
2 jars (10 oz.) grape jelly
Add 1 tsp. Worchestershire sause and salt and pepper to taste.
Heat the chili sauce and grape jelly in a pot until bubbly. Add precooked meatballs and continue heating until you can stab a meatball and know it is ready.
