Crockpot Meatballs Recipe


Football Food
Whenever we are attending a get-together or family function, I'm always hoping there will be a crockpot full of delicious meatballs. As far as crockpot meals goes, meatballs are probably my most favorite. Why? Three words: Cheap, easy, and tasty. This recipe takes five minutes to prepare (and by prepare I mean dump everything into the slow cooker and stir), the ingredients cost less than $10, and à la Pringles, once you pop you can't stop!

I hope you'll consider this recipe for your next potluck, family function, game day, or for a day when you know you'll be pressed for time and don't want to worry about what to cook that evening. Toss them in a hoagie roll for a meatball sub, or on biscuits for sliders, throw them over a bed of rice, or enjoy them as-is!

Crockpot Meatballs Recipe

  • 1 - 32 oz. bag of frozen meatballs of choice
  • 1 - 18 oz. jar of grape jelly
  • 1 - 18 oz. bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
Three ingredients! Can you handle it?

  1. Place the frozen meatballs into your slow crockpot/slow cooker.
  2. Add the jelly and barbecue sauce.
  3. Stir until well combined.
  4. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
