  • 1 18-ounce container Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce or your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1 18-ounce jar Grape Jelly
  • 1 25-ounce bag frozen fully cooked meatballs
  1. Set a large pot or dutch oven on the stove over low-medium heat. Add BBQ sauce and grape jelly to pot - stir well to combine. Add meatballs to the mix - stir to fully coat with sauce.

  2. Once sauce begins to boil, lower heat. Simmer meatballs over low heat (partially covered) until they are fully cooked through and sauce has thickened (about 45 minutes). Serve warm (with toothpicks as an appetizer or over rice as a main dish).

Recipe Notes

Storage: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to one week.

Prefer to use a slow-cooker? Simply add all ingredients to the slow cooker, stir to combine, then cook on low for 3-4 hours.
