Slow Cooker Party Meatballs
It’s New Years Eve and our evening could not be complete without our favorite Party Meatballs made in the Crock-Pot or our Ham & Swiss Sliders. My entire family loves these things. Our party meatballs are always one of these first appetizers to be finished at most every single party we host or potluck we attend. I like how super simple they are to make. I was able to whip up these cocktail meatballs in just a few minutes time.
You will find them perfect for potlucks, the holidays, game day, New Year’s, and even spring and summer BBQ’s. Super Bowl Sunday is just around the corner and we always make a batch. You will find them perfect for the Big Game.
Sometimes I will serve some small bakery rolls on the side for the kiddos to make little meatball sliders. Plus if you run low on meatballs, you can dip the bread in the leftover sauce that remains in the Crock-Pot. Super yummy and just another option for enjoying these little guys.
The grape jelly adds just a bit of sweetness and really makes the sauce stick to the meatballs. The sauce also works great for the little cocktail weiners that are perfect for parties too! The sauce has just a bit of spice that combines so well with the sweet.
You can just leave your Slow Cooker Party Meatballs right in the Crock to keep them warm or set them out on a platter with toothpicks for guests to just grab and go.
If you are serving these on game day, you could serve them with your favorite team colors.
