Of course it can be made on the stove top too.  I love using my slow cooker because not only is it easy to prepare it in, it becomes an easy to transport recipe too!  Perfect for on the go eating. My husband LOVES these meatballs and they are always requested for the Super Bowl or any Big Game or party.  In fact I always make appetizers on Christmas Eve for my family and we serve these in addition to other appetizers on our menu.

This is a dump and go recipe.  Simply mix the chili sauce and grape jelly until blended in a crockpot. Add all the frozen meatballs but make sure completely covered with sauce. Turn crock pot on low for 4 – 5 hours or high for 2 hours. Serve with a toothpick.  We like to use fancy toothpicks :-).

You can easily make this gluten free by using a gluten free meatball.  We love Casa Di Bertacchi brand which is sold at Sam’s Club.  It is gluten free.  This makes me happy because then I can enjoy the appetizer on Christmas Even with the family.

    This has been my favorite *secret* recipe for years! LOL Everyone loves them!! Hope you & yours have a great Christmas!

  2. i make this without the chilli sauce – they taste sweet and sooo good. when my grandma said you just put in a jar of jelly, i couldn’t believe it!!

  3. Every recipe I see for meatballs has a jar of grape jelly in it, I wonder why that is! The picture looks very yummy!

  4. I’ve made this recipe except I made the meatballs myself. I like the idea of using store bought meatballs instead. It’s a great time saver. Either way, it’s a crown pleaser.

  5. These meatballs are incredible and my family members *do* love our meatballs. 🙂

  7. I make a version on this recipe with cocktail sauce instead of chili sauce. I’m going to have to try your recipe.

  8. My mom makes this but her recipe is a little different. She puts grape and apple jelly plus ketchup in her swedish meatballs plus lil smokies.

  9. I have used the combination of meatballs, ketchup, grape jelly and picant sauce ans it’s yummy also.
