Are you looking for a super simple dish to bring to a potluck or party? My Easy Party Meatballs are always a huge hit and couldn’t be easier to make!

Slow cooker Meatballs

I originally shared this recipe over on GOODEness Gracious during my Crockpot Week this year.

The secret to these tangy meatballs are two-fold.

The Secret’s In the Sauce

Frozen meatballs and grape jelly.

Add a little chili sauce and you will have a delicious little dish that will have them coming back for more.

Short on Time?

Can’t wait for your slow cooker to heat these through? Combine the ingredients and heat in the microwave in 6 minute increments until stirring in between until the meatballs are heated through.

Mix It Up

I love to whip up a batch of these with my French Onion Meatballs and Crab Rangoon Dip and throw into a 3-Pot Buffet Slow Cooker before a party.
