Slow Cooker BBQ Meatballs Recipe

Game day for Super Bowl Sunday is quickly approaching and I wanted to share a recipe that is quick and easy as well as delicious! These meatballs are perfection....a real crowd pleaser and the recipe I'm sharing can be done 2 ways, just in case you do not have certain kitchen appliances on hand.

 In my family this is a 'semi-staple' at every get together because it is bite size and kids also really enjoy these. The reason I say 'semi-staple' is because we usually do not serve them at Christmas Dinner and Easter since there are so many other traditional dishes there; yet if it's a birthday, family game night, super bowl, playoffs, dinner party, baby shower, or bridal event these meatballs are always a great idea. It's an easy menu item for guests to handle and the flavor is a familiar BBQ taste that is sweet yet savory. Serve with sturdy two-prong tooth picks to make it a user friendly dish.

Instructions for cooking BBQ Meatballs 2 different ways are below!

Slow Cooker and Crock Pot Instructions
This idea is the easiest option when hosting an event, these can cook away while you tend to other details of your meal and decor for the party!

Step 1:
Place frozen meatballs into slow cooker.

Step 2:
Pour BBQ sauce and Grape Concord Jelly over the meatballs.

Step 3:
Cook on High for 3hrs.
- toss to coat meatballs in sauce when complete, garnish with green onions, serve, you're DONE!

Oven Instructions
If you find yourself with no slow cooker/ crock pot in sight, like me one time, we couldn't find the ceramic insert...just the outer warming receptacle and glass lid. With a party in a few hours I had to make them in the oven.
Step 1:
Line your baking sheet with parchment or foil. Bake meatballs according to the instructions on your specific package of meatballs.

Step 2:
Warm up BBQ sauce and Grape Concord Jelly at medium heat on the stove top in a large, deep pot. Stir occasionally until it's simmering and silky smooth consistency.

Step 3:
Add cooked meatballs into sauce mixture and combine the two, coating the meatballs. Garnish with green onion and serve!

This recipe can be adapted to any type of meat dish you want to warm up or cook in a crock pot. Make sure the meat is fully cooked if just warming up. Also this can be served as an appetizer or made into a main course simply be serving over some white rice with some veggies on the side.

Violet and Denim- Fashion Caché Friday #4

What I wore to work, nothing fancy...just a easy comfortable winter outfit to keep you warm but not too overly casual. I quickly took these picture at work next to some natural lighting.

I still love my beaded flats.

I took this picture of my mani before realizing my nails have already grown so much, it is done with the shellac on top of real nails. The bow on HK is acrylic.
I was channeling Sigma Kappa today with my look, my sorority in college colors were violet, maroon....yet we would through in white and pink in some decor and design. This shade of purple reminds me of that violet....1 heart 1 =>.
