It’s Championship Weekend in College Football! Are you looking for a simple snack for watching all the games? These meatballs are so simple and only 3 ingredients. All you have to do is mix everything up and simmer it on the stove for about 25 minutes. You could use a slow cooker if you wish. The slow cooker would be great for keeping the meatballs warm during any football and holiday parties.
The first time I had these meatballs was several years ago at a Christmas party. I absolutely loved them! I could not stop eating them. I made Chicken Legs get some extra on his plate so I could eat extra without people noticing. I was shocked when I found out how they were made. I can promise you I would have never tried them if I had known they had grape jelly in them. Yuck! Who knew it would be SO good!

  1. Hey, Stephanie! I plan to make these for our work tailgate tomorrow! I was planning on just bringing in my crockpot to plug in… would you sugeest 1-2 hours on high or low? Thank you!

  2. My version is a little bit different as well. I use bbq sauce like a previous poster but some mustard along with it. Mine always go in the slow cooker but I have to have it in there for at least 8 hours even though they are frozen meatballs. Mainly because the longer they have been in the sauce cooking the better it taste in my opinion.

  3. Hey there
    Steph,
    Am thinking about trying these and just happen to have frozen balls in my freezer although they are Italian style, did you ever use them in this recipe?

  4. i make these all the time, but instead i use whole jellied cranberries, pasta sauce, saurkraut, & brown . throw it all in a slow cooker comes out delicious! I'm not a fan of saurkraut or cranberries by themselves, but combined it makes a surprisingly good meatball sauce
