  • One PARTY SIZE package of frozen Italian-style meatballs about 96 meatballs
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup bourbon use less if you prefer!
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • salt and pepper


  • In a large bowl, mix together ketchup, honey, bourbon, brown sugar, and lemon juice.
  • Place frozen meatballs in your slow cooker.
  • Pour sauce mixture evenly over the meatballs. Stir to coat the meatballs as evenly as possible.
  • Cook on high for one hour.
  • Check on the meatballs and stir them occasionally, to evenly coat the meatballs with the sauce.
  • After one hour, turn down the temperature to low and cook on low for 2 hours.


If your slow cooker has a Buffet setting as mine does, you can keep it on this setting throughout your party to keep the meatballs warm.
