Recipe for Sweet and Savory Crock Pot Meatballs

crockpot meatballs recipe 1

My family LOVES meatballs so we make a variety of recipes using them quite often. I’ve shared our Sweet and Tangy Meatballs recipe, which has an awesome flavor, but the recipe I am going to share with you today is not only very delicious, but it is even simpler to make. ANNNND these crock pot meatballs are made using only 3 ingredients that you literally place in the slow cooker and forget about until you are ready to eat. I love easy foods that tempt my taste buds!


  • 1- 2lb bag of frozen meatballs
  • 1- 12oz jar of grape jelly
  • -1 12oz bottle of BBQ sauce


  1. Place the frozen meatballs into your crock pot.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the grape jelly and BBQ sauce until well blended. Pour over meatballs.
  3. Cook on low all day or on high for 2-4 hours.
  4. Serve as a party appetizer or partner with mashed potatoes and dinner rolls for a delicious dinner!

  1. These look fantastic and oh, so easy! My family would absolutely love these at our get togethers.

  2. I had forgotten about these meatballs! I’m getting some on my next trip to Costco. They really are tasty!

  3. I literally just made these. So yummy and somewhat low carb. I used Texas BBQ sauce that had a little heat. Great for midday munching. I plan on trying turkey meatballs for a birthday party next week. Thanks for sharing!!

  4. This sounds wonderful! I’ve been looking for a meatball recipe like this, so I’m definitely going to keep this in mind! :)

  5. These look really good. I was planning on making meatballs from scratch this week. Maybe I’ll make them and stick them in the crockpot with the jelly and BBQ sauce! Visiting from the Link Party Palooza!

  6. this is one of my favorite meals. my mom makes it, and she makes the meatballs from scratch and uses cranberry sauce. i’ll likely do this easy route! we then pour them over rice, and meatballs and rice is the best thing ever.



  1. […] CrockPot Meatballs – I usually make my own meatballs, but combine some meatballs with the barbeque sauce and you’d have a tasty meal!  You can serve these alone as appetizers, but try them in a hoagie bun or on top of rice for a main meal. […]
