Grape Jelly Meatballs

Mik's Minis Grape Jelly Meatballs
x1 bag frozen Italian meatballs
x1 jar grape jelly
x1 bottle barbecue sauce

1. Put meatballs, grape jelly, and barbecue sauce in a large crock pot, in that order.

2. Cook on high for two hours.

3. Stir crock pot gently with wooden spoon, set to low. Serve hot.

It doesn't get any easier than this one folks! It sounds weird, I know, grape jelly and meatballs? Trust me on this one, I wouldn't lead you astray would I? It's not the healthiest, but does serve as a great, hot appetizer that goes a long way around the game table. Not as finger-food friendly as, say, Spicy Balls of Doom, but put a spoonful in a bowl with a fork, or serve the crock pot in the center table and dish out toothpicks, and you've got a crowd pleaser. It's good for both long RPG sessions, and football double-headers! When it comes to the jelly, I go with the cheapest stuff I can find in the store, but conversely, in regards to the barbecue sauce, I tend to go for the better brands. I mix it up from batch to batch too, sometimes I go with a honey-spicy sweet kind, sometimes I go with something a little more bold and spicy.


  1. Do you paint the meatballs first. I have had real trouble dry brushing mine. :)

  2. No, I use everyone's favorite painting shortcut...the dip!
