The Best Crockpot Meatballs Ever!

I’m going to preface this post with telling you that this is in no way my recipe. It all started when Great Wolf Lodge allowed me to host 12 moms at their location in Washington. For the two days the moms and their families were with us we tried to give them them meals. A sponsored dinner one night at a great local organic restaurant and the next night a potlock with lots of swag!

I had brought my crockpot and figured I’d just see what I could find in the freezer to make at a local store when my friend Stephanie told me to make some meatballs. She said grab a jar of grape jelly, Chili Sauce and meatballs from the frozen foods and cook in my crockpot for a few hours. Sure enough everyone came and enjoyed her meatballs and ‘our family has been loving them ever since.

  • 1 bag frozen meatballs
  • 1 jar of grape jelly
  • 1 bottle of chili sauce

    this reminds me of when I first started dating my husband! I told him I was going to make cocktail weenies with bbq sauce & grape jelly- he thought I was going to TOP them with those things- and was disgusted. I won him over after they cooked in the crock pot for a few hours- I will toss in meatballs next time though- yum!

    Hi there! I’m your newest follower. Grape jelly?! How interesting, and what a simple recipe. I’m going to have to give this a try. What is the flavor like?

    I have heard of meatballs using grape jelly but never saw the recipe. Wow, how easy is THAT? I am on board for sure to try this one. I make some homemade and takes Forever and makes such a mess, plus is very expensive. I am ready to try a new recipe! Thanks much!

    These are awesome, we have been using this recipe for years and they are always a big hit. I also use the same sauce with the Hillshire Farms Lil Smokies, the sauce is much bettre than using bbq sauce.
