3-Ingredient Slow Cooker Meatballs

These 3-Ingredient Slow Cooker Meatballs are incredibly easy, with just 3 ingredients thrown into a slow cooker! Perfect for a quick ‘n scrumptious appetizer or make it a meal by serving it over your favorite starch.

Hey, Friends!  It’s good to be back after taking more days off than I meant to 😉  So what are y’all doing in these post-Christmas days??
One of The Littles said it well when he declared that it feels like the world loses a bit of shiny excitement starting December 26th.
It’s one of the easiest finger foods that you don’t eat with your fingers unless you want to.  It’s super hands-off, which is ideal for those who appreciate keeping it simple.
These could be called no-stress meatballs.  Just combine sweet and tangy grape jelly, the best frozen meatballs you can get your hands on, and your favorite honey BBQ sauce.
My favorite is Baby Rays, which I keep saying every single time I make anything with prepared BBQ sauce.  It’s truly the best.
That’s the beauty of hosting big parties after Christmas.  It keeps the festivities rolling.  That’s a very good thing in this Ice Age-y land.
Bring on the cooking, baking, eating, sharing, lotsa peeps, crazy loud kids… it’s all awesome sauce.
Plus, it gives me a fully acceptable excuse to leave my brightly lit tree up just a tad longer


  • 50 good quality frozen meatballs (fully cooked)
  • 1 18oz jar grape jelly
  • 1 18oz Honey BBQ Sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray’s)
  • (Optional: thinly sliced green onions for garnish)


  1. In the slow cooker, combine the grape jelly and honey BBQ sauce. Stir until well combined. Add frozen meatballs. Stir to fully coat meatballs with sauce. Cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 5 hours, occasionally stirring midway.
  2. Serve warm. Sprinkle with thinly sliced green onions, if desired.
