  • 2 22 oz. bag frozen meatballs
  • 18 oz. jar apricot preserves
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce


  • Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker and mix well. Cover and cook on high heat for 2-3 hours, stirring a couple times throughout. Serve warm as an appetizer with toothpicks!


This recipe makes a massive batch of party meatballs. This batch will feed 12 hungry people at a party. Cut the recipe in half for a smaller gathering! Although, they are great as leftovers, as well. Throw them into a hearty salad or turn them into a meatball sub or add them to your spaghetti sauce.
Feel free to replace the apricot preserves with a different variety. Peach, grape and cherry are all tasty options, too!
To make this a gluten-free appetizer, omit the Worcestershire sauce and read the label on your package of meatballs to make sure it does not contain wheat.
