These scrumptious Slow Cooker Grape Jelly and Mustard Meatballs are a hit at any party. The sauce is made with 2 simple ingredients to create the most amazing appetizer!
It’s the time of year for parties with friends and family. Easy appetizers like these Meatballs in Ketchup and Jelly Sauce and this Layered Taco Dip or are always on my list since I would much rather be joining in the fun than slaving in the kitchen.
These Grape Jelly Meatballs were always one of my favorites growing up. My mother used to make this recipe for her Holiday office party every year and I would beg for her to bring me home a plateful.
This is such a classic recipe that you must try! The sauce is created simply by combining equal parts grape jelly and yellow mustard. That’s it! It tastes so much fancier than it is!
To make it even more super simple, I used frozen meatballs. You can also find gluten free varieties if you need to as well.
How to Make Grape Jelly Meatballs in a Crockpot
Simply add the frozen meatballs or cooked homemade meatballs to your slow cooker.
Then mix 1 cup of Grape Jelly and 1 cup of Yellow Mustard together in a small saucepan.
Heat until jelly has melted and sauce is thoroughly combined.
Pour the sauce over the meatballs.
Cook for 3-4 hours on High. (If using unfrozen meatballs, you can decrease the cooking time to 2 hours)
If you are having a party or taking them to a party, keep setting setting on warm in the slow cooker and serve with toothpicks.

It’s very good! Although I made a mistake, I just sorta tossed in the globs of grape jelly and squirted a bunch of mustard in without noticing the part about doing that part in a sauce pan, in the end it all heated up and melted just fine, just had to stir a bit more than probably intended lol, I remember my mom following this recipe quite a few years back for a tasty Christmas morning breakfast and really wanted to make it again, so I dug through her archive of favourited recipes and found this gem once more!
Can you make a meal out of these?
