Slow Cooker Meatball appetizer
 
 
 

The holidays are here and you know what that means. Parties GALORE!

 

And what appetizer is LOVED by all? You got it! Meatballs. These tangy meatballs will have your guests gathered around the crockpot  fighting for the last bite. 

 

 

Don’t like frozen meatballs? I used them to save some time (momma loves to save time). But if you have a killer meatball recipe, feel free to use your homemade recipe instead.

 
 
 
 
Here is what you need: Serve 8-10

 28 oz bag of frozen meatballs

12 oz jar of orange marmalade

1/2 small jalapeno, diced

1/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup beef broth

3-4 green onions, chopped

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

 
 
 
 

1. In the crockpot, mix together marmalade, orange juice, jalapeno, onion, broth, salt and pepper. Stir until well combined. 

2. Add meatballs and mix to coat.

3. Set crockpot on LOW for 4.5 – 5 hours.

      Yes, I would shorten it just a bit…maybe 3.5-4 hours on low. You don’t want the meatballs to dry out. Hope that helps!

    I can’t wait to try this… How’s the kick with the jalapenos? I’ve got a wuss, a picky 4 year old, and a 2 year old… Not a very spicy friendly household!

      There is a little kick to them, so I would leave those out and maybe add some extra green onions. I hope you love them :) XO

        Made these today using Seville orange marmalade (didn’t know there was a difference until everything was in the pot), they took that bitter Seville flavor, though I did add some sugar. None the less picky for year old and toddler went back for more!

        I wonder how this would do with pineapple chunks and bell peppers. Shishkabobs here we come!

      I have done a crunchy Asian Pasta Salad or a potato salad. I think any pasta salad would go great with these. Hope that helps :)

    OMMY NOMMY NOMMY! I loved these. I could have eaten them all! I had them by themselves, I had them stuffed in between Hawaiian Rolls as a little mini sammich, and I had them over rice. I would prefer it over rice because it’s more like a meal, but there wasn’t enough sauce so it was just plain rice and didn’t taste good like that. Man, would I love it if the recipe was updated to be saucier! 😉 Should I just double it? I really want to try your other crockpot meatball recipe now but I’m too scared because I don’t want to run into the not-enough-sauce problem again. Hmmm…!

    I’m having a lot of people over this Saturday for my daughter’s first birthday so I was wondering if I could double up on everything??
    Thanks a lot!

    This recipe sounds great. I didn’t have any orange juice so I substituted juice from an orange. I also added some diced garlic and some pear ginger jam along with the orange marmalade. The meatballs are still cooking. They are going to a New Year’s Eve party..
