Who’s excited for the Big Game coming up??

I’m a huge football fan but I’m not going to lie, I am just as excited (or maybe more) for the halftime performance from J Lo and Shakira!! 

We usually have a game day watching party with our family and friends for the Big Game, and one of our party appetizer staples are crockpot meatballs! Everybody loves them (including kids!) and they are the easiest party food I make the whole day. With only 3 ingredients total, you can easily make ahead of time and let them simmer in the crockpot as your guests arrive and during the party.

How to Make Meatballs in Slow Cooker?

1. Add your favorite meatballs to the crockpot (I use a 24 oz frozen bag of chicken meatballs in this video) You can use homemade as well, or turkey or beef – whatever is your meatball preference!

2. Then add your favorite 18 oz BBQ sauce and 30 oz container of grape jelly and pour over the meatballs in the crockpot. Mix well.

3. Cook on high for 2 – 2 1/2 hours, or low for 4 – 4 1/2 hours.

4. Enjoy!!

Tips and Suggestions:

– You can alter the amount of barbecue sauce and grape jelly according to your taste preferences. If you prefer less sweet, add more barbecue sauce and less grape jelly.

– One of our favorite meatballs we use for this recipe is the Aidells Teriyaki & Pineapple Chicken Meatballs! Something about the sweetness and bold flavors mixed together is so good!
