One of the Simplest and Tastiest Meatball Recipes You’re ever going to try! These Crockpot Meatballs are so full of spice and great for parties. Best of all, it just takes 5 minutes of prep time!

Meatballs are a great aperitif for celebrations, showers, and major gatherings!

My husband is particularly fond of the recipe, and he’s been asking for it a couple of times since the New Years’ got together, and I’m glad he’s doing it because they’re so nice!




  • 1 jar. Of Grape Jelly, I used the large size-32oz.

  • A bottle.Of 12oz Of Chili/BBQ Sauces.

  • 1 large PKG.Of Meatballs.

  • 2 Tbsp.Of ketchup.

  • 1 Tbsp.Of brown sugar.

  • And water.

P.s: You should still use your homemade meatballs, chuck them in the freezer for around 20 minutes after you roll them up so they’ll maintain their shape in the Slow Cooker.


  1. Put in a CrockPot all ingredients, cover with a lid, and let it cook for a couple of hours at low heat, only until it’s all heated, Quick!
  2. If you make your meatballs from scratch, cook at LOW for 6 hours.

Meatball Boats

Homemade meatballs are a right of passage in an Italian family. My mother-in-law taught me how to make my own. Her recipe is a full meat sauce, so when I’m craving meatballs during the week, I take a shortcut and make them in my slow cooker. It’s not a quick meal, but it’s easy, with few ingredients and the meatballs can make several meals if you make more, like I do.


  • 1 lb ground beef

  • 1 large egg

  • ⅓ C breadcrumbs

  • ¼ C parmesan cheese

  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic

  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil

  • 2 C marinara sauce

  • 8 mini hoagie rolls

  • 12 slices asiago cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare a baking pan with non-stick spray.
  3. In a bowl, add the ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, garlic, parmesan cheese and parsley.
  4. With your hands, work the ingredients together.
  5. Add salt and pepper.
  6. With the ice cream scoop, begin to form your meatballs.
  7. Set them aside.
  8. Add the oil to the skillet, heating it over medium heat.
  9. Add one meatball at a time to the heated pan.
  10. Cook for about 5 minutes or until seared on all sides.
  11. Place the meatballs in the oven on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  12. Bake for 12 minutes.
  13. Remove from oven and set aside.
  14. Cut out an oval on top of the roll, leaving about ½ inch on the ends and sides.
  15. Dig in but do not cut all the way to the bottom half of the roll.
  16. Use a knife to hollow out the top of the roll.
  17. Place the roll on the baking sheet.
  18. Place a slice of cheese in the hollowed out area.
  19. Return to the oven and bake for 8 minutes.
  20. Add 2 tablespoons of marinara to the cheese.
  21. Place 3 meatballs on top of the cheese.
  22. Add marinara on top of the meatballs.
  23. Place grated Parmesan cheese on top of marinara.
  24. Return to oven and bake for 6 to 8 minutes.
