A classic slow cooker appetizer that is perfect for any get together! This simple Crockpot Grape Jelly & BBQ Meatballs Recipe is delicious!
One thing is for sure. In the slow cooker playbook, there are some staple recipes that every good cook must have. If you ask any man in America he will tell you that one of them is this easy to make Crockpot Grape Jelly & BBQ Meatballs recipe.
So grape jelly & bbq sauce? YES, I think we are all skeptical the first time that we hear it, but it is a thing, and it makes these meatballs mouthwateringly tasty.
Just serve them hot however you choose. We have done them on a tray with little toothpicks, and we have even skipped the tray and go straight to serving them in a bowl with a fork. Both ways are totally acceptable, and the leftovers are amazing on a BBQ Meatball sandwich!
I have found that these are best made in at least a 4 Quart Crockpot. You can also double the recipe, but you will obviously need a bigger crockpot.
