Made these meatballs using 1 lb. store bought frozen meatballs, plus 1-1/4 lbs. of frozen home-made meatballs. The bbq sauce I used in this recipe was, Sweet Baby Rays Sweet 'N Spicy, plus I used Welch's Concord Grape Jam. I cooked the meatballs for 2 hrs & 20 minutes, and served them with some mashed taters and brussel sprouts. When I reheated the leftover meatballs, I added a pinch of dried red pepper flakes to them, and they tasted great!

A similar recipe has been making the party circles for years and is always a huge hit. Original recipe calls for grape jelly and chili sauce. Not as sweet and better for calorie counters. Great with Little Smokies sausages as well.

I have been looking for the perfect meatball recipe for awhile now and have found it here! I made my own meatballs in a skillet instead of prepackaged and added onion in with the sauce and they were a hit! No leftovers! Will be making it for the office xmas party coming up soon. DELICIOUS

I added in a few red chili peppers and the contrast between the sweet and spicy was great!

Hello, I have about a 1/2 cup of blackberry jelly. Can I add strawberry jelly to add to make 9 oz?

I made these for my Scentsy party and they were a big hit. Everyone knew there was something other then bbq sauce and had fun trying to figure it out. Thank you for this simple recipe that was loved by all.

A+ This is such an easy recipe and it's absolutely delicious! I used frozen traditional meatballs, a full bottle of Jack Daniel's Hickory Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce and half a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce, Welch's Grape Jelly and added half of a large sweet onion. I allowed everything to cook for four hours and served them with mashed red potatoes and parmesan green beans. You've gotta give these a try!!! :-)

Amazing appetizer!!! I made these tonight for a Halloween gathering. I can't believe how 3 ingredients can yield so much flavor. I used frozen store bought meatballs and cheap honey BBQ sauce. I placed then in a crock pot for 2 hours on high and voila!!!
