Grape Jelly Meatballs are a classic sweet and savory appetizer that everyone loves! With just 10 minutes of prep time and the ultimate seasoning blend, your Crockpot slow cooks these babies to perfection.


  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 tbsp onion flakes
  • 2 tbsp Italian seasoning (or 1 Tbsp oregano and 1 Tbsp parsley)
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 10 oz grape jelly
  • 12 oz Chili sauce
  • Dried or fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with foil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, onion flakes, Italian seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.
  3. With your hands, divide and roll the beef mixture into roughly 1-inch meatballs. Place each rolled meatball onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake the meatballs for roughly 15-20 minutes, until they’re nice and browned on the outside. The meatballs should reach at least 155°F internally when cooked throughout.
  5. Remove the meatballs from the baking sheet and place them in the bottom of a medium-sized crockpot. Add the grape jelly and chili sauce. Gently toss the meatballs with a spoon to evenly coat them in the sauce.
  6. Cover the Crockpot and set it to low for 2-3 hours, or until the sauce is hot and bubbly. Serve with a garnish of parsley and enjoy!
