BBQ Meatballs.. easy to make in the crock pot, this recipe only takes 3 ingredients and 5 minutes to prep! Doesn’t get better than that.
These crock pot grape jelly meatballs are a family favorite. They are seriously so good and the perfect appetizer for game day! They almost remind me of sweet and sour meatballs but taste better!
My Grandpa has been making these crockpot meatballs for years and we always loved them growing up. My sister even talked him into making them as an appetizer at her wedding. Everyone loved them! Now of course my family has their actual “homemade meatballs recipe,” which are just as amazing.
The best part about these BBQ meatballs is that no one would ever know how simple they are to make. You could even turn them into a main dish and serve them over sticky rice. YUM!
Grape jelly meatballs
These slow cooker grape jelly meatballs are so easy to make. You just need 3 simple ingredients:
- Grape jelly
- BBQ Sauce
I love getting the meatballs from Costco or Kroger. They taste the best in my opinion. And sweet baby ray’s BBQ sauce is my personal favorite. :) However feel free to make your own homemade meatballs and BBQ sauce if you prefer.
Crockpot Meatball Recipe
- 32 ounce bag frozen fully cooked meatballs (about 50)
- 18 ounce jar grape jelly
- 18 ounce BBQ sauce
Optional: Cooked rice, sliced green onions
- Combine the grape jelly and BBQ sauce in a small bowl or in the base of your slow cooker. Add meatballs and stir until they are coated with the sauce. Cook on high for 2 to 3 hours.
- Enjoy as an appetizer or serve over rice for a main dish.
If you want to mix things up, you can always use 2 packages of little smokies instead of meatballs too. So good!
YUMMM! Enjoy! :)
