I love meatballs, and when I am too lazy to make them I do use frozen. In this case these are the best recipe to use with frozen meatballs. They take no time to throw together and heat rather quickly. I would see this recipes similar often and thought it sounded terrible. One reason was because I don’t care for grape jelly, but I love BBQ sauce it was a conflict of interest. I had never bought grape jelly in my life, so I went out and purchased some and took the risk. Well take my word for it, it was a risk worth taking After making these the first time, I made them again a few days later and then my sister went home and made them again. They are my new go to for a picnic or potluck when a hot dish is required.
- 2-3 lbs. frozen meatballs or homemade (you make the choice, beef or turkey)
- 18 oz. bottle of BBQ sauce (again your favorite sauce)
- 3/4 cup of grape jelly
Place all the ingredients in a 3-4 quart slow cooker. Cook on low 3-4 hours, stirring every hour or so.
*After the first hour or so once the sauces have come together, taste the sauce. Add more jelly to make it sweeter or more BBQ to add a smoky flavor. I like mine with more BBQ flavor so that is how I have written the recipe.
