The Perfect March Madness Dish – Crock Pot Meatballs

March Madness marks one of my favorite times of year.  No; it’s not football.  But it’s college hoops at its finest!  It never matters which two teams are facing off against each other… it could be a Cinderella (a team that was lucky to receive an invitation to The Big Dance as it’s called) versus one of the top ranked teams expected to win it all… the games are fantastic.  Rarely is there a blowout; often times there’s a buzzer beater; and there’s almost always a handful of upsets, making the first weekend of the tournament a truly exciting time for any sports enthusiast.

So, what goes great with March Madness?


Sweet & Tangy Meatball Ingredients

First, what’s needed:

1 – bag of frozen Swedish meatballs (we used a 2lb bag of Great Value meatballs)
2 – 12 oz bottles of chili sauce
1 – large jar of grape jelly

Now let’s cook:

Dump in the crock pot.  Yep!  Dump all three ingredients and stir until the meatballs are completely covered.

Cook on high for two hours or low for four.

Sweet & Tangy Crock Pot Meatballs

This is some serious yum here, folks.  I know the combination of ingredients sounds funky, but we didn’t have one single meatball left last time we made this.


What do you think?  Is this recipe worth a try?  Have any other easy meatball recipes to share?  I’d love to hear from you!
