  • 2 quart slow cooker


  • 32 ounces frozen homestyle meatballs
  • .5 cup BBQ sauce
  • .5 cup grape jelly


  • Add meatballs to slow cooker
  • Top with BBQ sauce and jelly and stir
  • Cook on high until heated through (about 2 hours) or on low for about 4 hours, stir occasionally


  • this is easy to double, triple or quadruple just increase your slow cooker to a 4, 6 or 8 quart size
  • swap out bbq sauce for chili sauce or ketchup to mix up flavors
  • swap out grape jelly for another flavor and feel free to use a no sugar added version as well
  • Make sure to grab homestyle and not Italian style meatballs and no matter the sauce, they will turn out amazing
  • Watch the slow cooker and stir occasionally so that the meatballs and sauce don't burn (anything on the bottom or sides will cook a little faster)
  • leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat covered loosely with paper towel in microwave
  • I don't recommend freezing leftovers unless you use fresh meatballs to make them
