  • 18 ounces BBQ sauce
  • 18 ounces grape jelly
  • 32 ounces frozen meatballs


  • Mix the BBQ sauce and grape jelly in the slow cooker.
  • Add the frozen meatballs and stir.
  • Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours or on high for 2 hours.


Note: I love using a crockpot liner to make clean-up easy. You can also spray the slow cooker dish with non-stick cooking spray before pouring in your ingredients.
Note: If you want to skip the crockpot for these easy grape jelly meatballs, you can add all the ingredients to a pan and simmer for 10-15 minutes over medium heat. Be sure to gently stir occasionally while the meatballs cook. 
Note: The meatball sauce in this recipe is a slightly thinner sauce than some other recipes. Don't worry if it doesn't thicken up, it's supposed to be this way.
