Every time I hear the word “meatballs”, the first thing that comes to my mind is barbecue meatballs. Why not? That recipe or food is one of the most famous or classic foods that we all love to eat.
I can’t really count how many times my wife or I make meatballs every year. It’s just a lot to count. Sometimes, when we are too lazy or in hurry, we just grab a bag of frozen meatballs either at Walmart or IKEA (if we go there to buy some furniture).
Just the other day, my wife and I were talking about what to eat for dinner. I’ll tell you that thinking about what to eat is the hardest part of our day. While my parents-in-law can cook just about anything, we don’t want them to cook for that day. It’s more like our time to cook.
Then, it popped in my head, that is, the grape jelly meatballs (crock pot method) that I ate when I went to a potluck party. I’ve seen and tasted that food a couple of times but I haven’t tried that at home yet.
You may wonder why it’s popular in potlucks. It’s because it’s way too easy to cook that food. Even a second grader can combine all the ingredients in no time.
But I’ll tell you that this is one of the best crock pot meatballs out there. Seriously, it’s one of the best.
Some people call this recipe “Grape Jelly Meatballs or “Homemade Meatballs With Grape Jelly”, “Welch’s Grape Jelly Meatballs’. Some call it “Slow Cooker Party Meatballs” or even all it “Smuckers Grape Jelly Meatballs”.
In short, there’s really no definite term on what to call this recipe. Having said that, people can agree that this is an easy recipe that anybody can create in no time. It’s one of the easiest yet tastiest foods you will ever taste in your life.
Seriously. I’m not kidding when I said that.
So, without any further ado, here is the recipe to the grape jelly meatballs recipe.
Combine both the grape jelly and the barbecue sauce in the crock pot. Once both ingredients are fully incorporate, drop the frozen meatballs in the crock pot. You don’t need to thaw the meatballs before putting them in the crock pot. That’s the magic of the crock pot. Haha
Make sure that the meatballs are fully coated with the sauce. Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours.
Enjoy the dish as an appetizer or main dish served with rice.
That’s it. I told you that’s easy. All you have to is combine all the ingredients, use your crock pot, and patiently wait until the meatballs are cook. You let the crock pot do its magic and let yourself take a break from a busy day.
