If you use your own homemade meatballs, brown them first in the oven or skillet. To bake homemade meatballs, line a baking pan with foil and bake at 375° for about 20 minutes. Or, try this recipe for Baked Meatballs.


  • 1 bag frozen prepared meatballs
  • 1 bottle (14 ounces) Ketchup
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) chili sauce (found next to ketchup in the grocery store)
  • 1 jar (10 ounces) grape jelly

Steps to Make It

  1. Put meatballs in slow cooker.

  2. Pour over remaining ingredients (I just dump them in, the jelly will melt as it heats)

  3. Heat on low until thoroughly heated through about 4 hours.

  4. Stir a few times during the cooking process to incorporate sauces.
