CROCKPOT - Cheddar Lit'l Smokies & Meatballs - You only need 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to prep! WINNER!!!
  • 1 Crockpot
  • 16 oz. bag of frozen fully cooked meatballs (This package size yields about 26 meatballs.)
  • 13 oz. package of lit'l smokies (I prefer Hilshire Farm - Cheddar Lit'l Smokies-Smoke Sausage with Cheddar Cheese. This package size yields about 35 Lit'l Smokies.)
  • 20 oz. jar of grape jelly (I prefer Welch's Concord Grape Jelly.)
  • 20 oz. jar of BBQ sauce (I prefer Famous Dave's BBQ Sauce-Rich and Sassy Original Recipe.
  • Your choice: wooden skewers, toothpicks, mini-forks, mini rolls ... or offer all options. :)
  1. Pour all 4 ingredients (Lit'l Smokies, Meatballs, BBQ Sauce & Grape Jelly) into the crockpot and stir to combine and evenly distribute the sauce.
  2. Cook on HIGH for 3 HOURS
  3. Provide your guests the opportunity to enjoy the meatballs and lit'l smokies on skewers, toothpicks, mini-forks, or (my favorite option) serve with a platter of mini rolls for the opportunity to make mini smokie/meatball sandwiches.
