Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line 4 baking sheets with Reynolds® NonStick Aluminum Foil (dull side up).

  • Combine the meat with all other meatball ingredients and form into about 80 bite-size meatballs. Place 20 meatballs on each pan, and bake for 35 minutes or until browned all the way through.

  • While the meatballs are baking, pour the barbecue sauce and the grape jelly into a sauce pan and heat over medium until they are well combined. If you want your meatballs to have a little extra kick, add some hot sauce to the mix. Once the meatballs are finished, you can slide them right off the pan and into your serving dish. Pour your sauce on top and serve immediately. The finished dish does well in the microwave if you are taking it to a party and need to reheat it.

This flavor is delicious! I did follow the basic idea but did modify it. I used 2 lbs of ground turkey 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs and 1 tablespoon of garlic powder to get the basic mix. I then seasoned them according to this recipe. For the sauce you do NOT need 32 oz of both BBQ sauce and jelly! I just used what I had (maybe 16 oz??) of each and that was more than enough! It even allowed for extra after coating the meatballs to then pour extra over the meatballs! They're delicious! Read More

I used precooked frozen meatballs found in the freezer section of the grocery store instead. It was still awesome! Read More

Don't be afraid of the jelly in the recipe! I've made this twice now and my husband & 2-year-old have gobbled it right up. I have also added some hot pepper sauce and served the meatballs on white rice both times which was a good combination. Read More

Don't think I'll ever make this unless it's for a party gathering hence making from scratch is out of the question. Like the other reviewer I used frozen meatballs got mine at Sam's club and like the other reviewer did not need all that sauce. Cut that down and since precooked meatballs used no need for oven cooking - overnight in the crock pot and it was done. SUPER QUICK AND EASY Read More

I pretty much followed the recipe as is and these came out delicious. I didn't have quite enough ground beef so used 1/2 pound of ground turkey in its place. I served them at an office potluck before Christmas and they were a big hit. Will definitely make them again. Read More
