This is a great appetizer. My grandma used to make these for holiday gatherings. So easy to make! Keep meatballs and polish sausage in crock pot for serving; people can grab them with toothpicks or a slotted spoon.

Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a large pot with lightly-salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the kielbasa and return to a boil. Cook until hot, 8 to 10 minutes; drain and cut into bite sized pieces. Place the kielbasa into a slow cooker; stir in the salsa, grape jelly, water, and lemon juice.

  • Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a mixing bowl; mix in the onion, ground beef, salt, pepper, and crushed cornflakes. Mix with your hands until evenly incorporated. Roll the mixture into balls the size of a large walnut; place into the slow cooker.

  • Set the slow cooker on High and cook until the meatballs are no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

This was not good at all!! The salsa and grape jelly makes a really foul taste no BBQ here! I hadn't put the meatballs in the slow cooker yet so I put them in the oven for 15mins then added to slow cooker with a jar of pasta sauce instead. I browned the sausage in a pan and added to slowcooker cooked on HIGH for 60mins. I was really hoping to salvage this and make a meal but NO! The meatballs were very DRY...I don't think it had anything to do with me popping them in the oven either. When I'm in a hurry I use a Parm Meatball recipe that you bake and they always turn out great. I would advise to just skip this recipe all together. Read More

Not good. Instead of using the jar of salsa substitute it for bottle of Hunt's chili sauce and mix with the grape jelly (don't use jam!). I make my meatballs differently breadcrumbs parmesan parsley and a splash of Worcestershire sauce and milk. Read More
