Cocktail Meatball Appetizer Recipe for the Crockpot Slow Cooker

With having over 15 people each time, it's tough to make a lot of little snacks to feed such a big group, so I tend to look to the crock pot for simple solutions. This way, I can still enjoy the game while the snack is warming up getting ready to be eaten at break time. This is also a great snack to put in a big bowl in the middle and let everyone take bites as they play. This recipe is a play on the standard Grape Jelly Cocktail Meatballs but instead of jelly I like to use cranberry sauce.

Cocktail Meatball Recipe Using Cranberry Sauce


    24oz of Frozen Meatballs (turkey meatballs work great as well)
    18oz of BBQ Sauce
    3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
    16oz Cranberry Sauce Jellied
    2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard

  1. Mix the BBQ Sauce, Soy Sauce, Cranberry Sauce and mustard together until you get a smooth consistency.
  2. Put frozen meatballs in the crock pot and pour the mixture over them. Stir so all of the meatballs are evenly coated.
  3. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. If it starts to boil, reduce the heat to "keep warm" so that the BBQ sauce does not burn.
  4. Enjoy!

You can also do this with homemade meatballs. I have made homemade venison meatballs in this recipe and they were a big hit. If you are doing the homemade meatballs, just brown the meatballs on the outside and then add to the crock pot. Cook 6-8 hours or until thoroughly cooked through. Do not allow the mixture to boil too long as the BBQ sauce will burn.
