Grape Jelly Meatballs

Perfect for parties, holidays, game nights, or even for a simple dinner over fluffy white rice. These meatballs are so easy to make! They are ready to go into your crockpot in less than 5 minutes!

Options: Replace the Grape Jelly with Grandma’s Jam House apricot jam, orange marmalade, holiday jam, raspberry jam, or hot pepper jam.

You can also make these yummy meatballs on the stove or in your oven:
Stovetop Meatballs – Add the meatballs, barbecue sauce and grape jelly to a Dutch oven or large pot and combine. Simmer over medium/low heat for 25-30 minutes or until the meatballs are warmed through, stirring occasionally to keep the sauce from burning.
Oven-Baked Meatballs – Add all the ingredients into a casserole dish or Dutch oven and mix to combine. Cover with lid or foil and bake at 325°F for 20-25 minutes or until the meatballs have cooked through. Note: Adjust the cooking time based on the size of your meatballs.
