Buffet Meatballs

With the Super Bowl game coming soon, these meatballs make an excellent part of the party foods to serve. I've been serving these meatballs since the first Super Bowl game, and made my own meatballs until the convenience of frozen ones came into being.



  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1 cup grape jelly
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 4 pounds frozen Italian-style meatballs


In a saucepan, combine juice, jelly, ketchup and tomato sauce. Cook and stir over medium heat until jelly is melted. Remove from heat.

Place meatballs in 5-quart slow cooker. Pour sauce over top and gently stir to coat. Cover and cook on LOW 4 hours, until heated through

Makes approximately: 11 dozen meatballs

Note: I add a few drops of hot sauce to one batch of these meatballs, giving the guests a choice of two flavors.
